Kibagare Slum with Google Street View

Visit Kibagare and take a brief visit through the slum to see what lies outside the school gates. The slum originated with former plantation workers who lost their livelihoods back in 1972 and has today grown to 17,000 people in a tiny strip of land hemmed in on all sides. 

The level of poverty experienced by families in Kibagare is immense. With such hardships and little employment the rate of substance abuse and crime and prostitution is high. At the heart of Kibagare lies Saint Martin's school which sits like a lighthouse and a beacon of hope where poverty, destitution are all around. 

With Google Street View - you won't get the get the sights, sounds, human stories, hardship, and poverty that abounds in the slum but you can experience some idea of our location and the homes that make up Kibagare.
