“POVERTY IS TEMPORARY KIBERA TALKING”
Like many residents of Kibera, Victor George has faced a life replete with tragic loss. A child of three, the 19 year-old's siblings were poisoned when he was young. He never knew his father and his mother, an alcoholic, has been largely unable to take care of him. Victor takes care of himself, keeping afloat by taking odd jobs around Kibera. While he finished primary school, he was never able to advance beyond it. Still, he is determined to make the most of each day, forging constantly onward.
Victor's unflappable will to survive serves as a reminder that even in dire circumstances–beset by personal turmoil, slim professional prospects, and a city built of refuse–a person with burning focus resists extinguishing.
