Focus On Makoko

Kindle Africa currently focuses on Makoko, a community in Lagos tagged as the World’s largest floating slum.

With an average number of 7 occupants in single-room residences, this densely populated community is riddled with palpable abject poverty and the environment is heavily polluted by refuse and untreated human waste. There are no bathrooms or toilets. As a result of open defecation, there’s a high rate of communicable diseases. Sadly, there are loss of lives due to some of these preventable diseases.

Also a result of very little or no income from both parents, Makoko has a very high population of out-of-school children who are exposed to various forms of abuse and often engaged in menial jobs to support their families. In the last one year, Kindle Africa has raised funds to enroll 57 in Makoko children in school and provided welfare services for over 1,000 families .
