There is a lot of police conflict with the community in Mathare … and sometimes this affects our
learning. [One] time our school burned down during a community conflict with the police … We had
to take a break [from learning] for the school to be reconstructed.
[Even though life in Mathare can be hard], I have very many friends … [here]. Some are working very
hard in school to improve their future and others are trapped in the challenges of our community.
