NAIROBI, KENYA - OCTOBER 29, 2011: Kamau "Kelly" Ng'ang'a (right) carries building materials through the slum alongside his teammates. Athletes in the Kibera Olympic Boxing Club regularly volunteer their time working odd jobs secured for them by their coach, Hassan Abdulkadir Salim. Money raised is then used for transportation, competition entry fees and new equipment.
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.
