PHOTO ESSAY: Kenya's Kibera School for Girls
Photographer Hilary Duffy captures images of Kenya's future at a groundbreaking girls' school inside one of the world's largest slums.
In August 2009, Shining Hope for Communities founded The Kibera School for Girls, the first tuition-free school for girls in Kenya's largest slum. Located on the outskirts of Kenya's capital city, infrastructure in sprawling Kibera is almost nonexistent, and its residents are often ignored and discarded by the rest of society. Kibera—on the margins economically and geographically—is rarely viewed as the center of anything. Photographer Hilary Duffy explores the energy inside the bright blue walls of the Kibera School for Girls to reveal a center of innovation and a training ground for future leaders.
