The Em pow ered Wom en of Korogocho

Beatrice Nyariara lives in Korogocho. It's widely

considered to be Nairobi's most dangerous slum.

More than 150,000 people are packed into the

shanty town which is less than two square

kilometers.

Crime is high. Gangs are active. Addiction is

rampant.

A while back, men in her community started to

attack the "grandmothers" of Korogocho at night.

Most of the women attacked are sexually

assaulted, and some have been killed. The men

believe that the elder women were less likely to be

HIV positive. They also saw them as vulnerable.

A few years ago, Beatrice decided enough was

enough. It was time to fight back. It was time to

develop a community.

The result of that decision empowered the group

and taught their community to respect them, value

them, and to know how to be there for them.

Together, they are taking back Korogocho.
