Eye-opening experience. It’s not only about building empathy for the resilience of the residents of Kibera, this experience is about supporting entrepreneurial ideas: the power of one man to support and give back to a community (yami). No matter what your circumstances are, thriving is about changing your mindset that you can. Moses teaches that through his experience not only to the visitors but also to the people we meet along the way. He should also add #5 experience: the Matatu ride :)!

I think in the most first world countries people still automatically associate Africa with poverty. Involuntarily I had also made up my mind about what living in Africa without or with very little money looks like. On Moses’ tour I started to realize that people are way more than statistics and than what is portrayed by NGO‘s and the news. It was a very special experience and I didn‘t expect to learn so much from it. I definitely recommend it!

The Experience with Moses was incredible. I learned a lot of things how the community works together. So if you visit this community go with an open Mind and an open heart. If you have things that you don’t need, bring it to the community, they will thanks you a lot. The People are not Dangerous, they are very friendly and always smiling and dancing to music that will be around you. So i can really recommend the Tour with Moses. You will learn a lot and see the other side of Nairobi. Thank you Moses for this day with you.

It was a very cool experience at one of the largest slums of the World. You have to see it to believe it. Moses was a very cool guide who turned out to be a friend.

Moses is a blessing from God. He has such an amazing heart and he’s truly a humble being. This tour was definitely one to remember —It gets very personal and makes you just appreciate waking up everyday and having everything you’re blessed with in life. You get more than your money’s worth during this tour because it’s so raw and truly Inspirational. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS TOUR —it will be an unforgettable experience and you’ll definitely make friends along the way that you’ll want to come back and visit during your next trip to Nairobi.
