THE STORY:

(Swedish below)

Wale Wale USA wrote -

Kibera is East Africa's largest slum area. We, Wale Wale, are going to build something for and OF the youth from around here. Figuratively, we have been preparing the ground for this project for the last two years. Now, we want to literally and physically build, brick by brick, the foundations for the future generations of Kibera - a four-story center including school, office, library, dance, media production and art facilities. The center is our vision for improving and extending our range of inclusion - to expand our local membership base from the current 40 youths to at least 300, so as to make a powerful impact on the community. Support this dream by helping us to purchase the necessary plot of land for the construction! We have divided the plot into 2,690 squares, namely square feet.  Since the plot will cost us $100,000, you can ‘buy’ one of them for just $37. We have a lot of ambition, we know. But we also have determination and support!
Around the world, people are working together with Wale Wale Kenya to make this and other dreams possible. The Wale Wale network machine - composed by Wale Wale Kenya, Wale Wale USA and Wale Wale Sweden - has already started its engine. There are a lot of people who believe in the way we do things and we are hoping you will be next. So help us to help ourselves as well as the next generation of Kibera to help each other.
Can you share a square?

Swedish:

Kibera är Östafrikas största slumområde. Vi, WaleWale, kommer att bygga något för ungdomarna i Kibera. Vi har förberett marken för detta projekt under de senaste två åren. Nu vill vi bokstavligt talat bygga, sten för sten, grunden för de kommande generationer av Kibera. Planen är att bygga en fyravånings-center inklusive skola, kontor, bibliotek, dans, medieproduktion och konst. Centret är vår vision för att förbättra och utvidga vår räckvidd av integration och gemenskap – att utöka vår lokala medlemsbas från nuvarande 40 stycken ungdomar till minst 300, för att möjliggöra deras roll i samhället. Stöd denna dröm genom att hjälpa oss att köpa marken för att bygga! Vi har delat upp marken till 2.690 rutor, det vill säga kvadratfot (square feet). Eftersom att tomten kommer att kosta oss 100.000 dollar kan du ”köpa” en av dem för endast 37 dollar. Vi vet om att detta är ett högt mål men vi har också en beslutsamhet och stöd för detta arbete! Runt om i världen arbetar människor tillsammans med Wale Wale Kenya för att göra detta möjligt. Vi består av Wale Wale Kenya, Wale Wale USA och Wale Wale Sverige. Det finns många människor som tror på vårt arbete och vi hoppas att du kommer bli nästa person som stöttar oss! Så hjälp oss med denna dröm, att möjliggöra en säker framtid för fler ungdomar i östafrikas största slumområde. Kan du donera en kvadratfot mark?
