exactly why we are here again

There are very good networks established in Kibera on all the themes we're focusing on in phase 2 (water, health, education, safety), and the goal is to bring these technologies of mapping, community media, and reporting directly to them. One of our main partners in Kibera is KCODA, publisher of the Kibera Journal, but more generally they seek to help the Kibera community in all its complexity to communicate effectively their perspectives and needs. So essentially Map Kibera is introducing technology to make this more effective.

Over the next few months, we'll be training video reports, community monitors, and more skills for the mapping group. This will all come together in a month long series of community meetings, in which will introduce the entire program, distribute paper maps, promote the SMS short code and the community monitors. Following that in June or so, we plan to hold accountability forums with government, UN, and other decision makers, and with the community, to present the results so far, and establish an ongoing relationship ... with the hope that it leads to real change in Kibera!
