THE STORY:

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?
