How can providing access to basic services and economic opportunities improve security for people living in slums in Nairobi?

6 March 2013

We asked a community-based group called Getto Green within one of Nairobi's slums to take photos of what they considered were the most important problems that caused insecurity in their communities so we could try to understand their points of view.

Helping communities by providing better access to basic services, such as water and sanitation, lighting, electricity, and garbage collections helps to improve the security of the community by providing safer spaces, reducing frustrations that can boil over into violence, and by providing jobs. And these are just a starting point.
