NAIROBI, KENYA - AUGUST 16, 2011: Kamau "Kelly" Ng'ang'a changes clothes in his one room apartment after excercising. Unable to find regular work in the slum, Ng'ang'a moved into this room in January of 2011 after a friend volunteered the space to him free of rent.
Within Kenya's progressive youth culture is the Kibera Olympic Boxing Club, a group of low-income adolescents from the slum whose leader uses boxing as a way to engage with idle youth. The group's ethnic diversity is remarkable given Kenya's 2008 post-election violence in which people from several tribes were forced violently out of slums. Together, these boxers represent a nascent trend of cross-tribe brotherhood in a healing nation.
