Mathare: Lights at Night

Light the slum

When dark falls in slums to some it become a source of worries. For small businesses selling vegetable and shop operators this means they have to close early. For the women, darkness is associated with insecurity. But with time, the government has tried to light the slums through the Adopt A Light. High masts fitted with powerful bulbs have been erected in some parts of Mathare. In locations where the lights have been erected, businesses have increased while insecurity has greatly reduced. -Simon
