THE LONG ROAD
Erick has always felt pressure to succeed. It came from many people—his neighbors, his family, even himself. Success, as defined by his family and many others in his community, simply meant making it through each day. But Erick’s vision for his future was bigger than mere survival. And to realize his vision, he believed he needed to invest in himself first—by getting an education. Others doubted his strategy, saying he should give up on school and try to find work to take care of his family. Erick knew he could do both. And he was right.
It wasn’t easy. Kibera is a tough, discouraging place, full of talented yet impoverished people looking for opportunities. After Erick’s father passed away from illness in their rural home, he returned to his home in Kibera to find their shack had been ransacked. Left with next to nothing, he worked construction jobs to survive from day to day, often skipping meals in favor of saving money for his education. With some persistence, he was re-admitted to his old high school, having earned the sympathetic ear of an administrator with his family’s misfortune.
Meanwhile, a friend told Erick about Carolina for Kibera and everything it was doing for the community. He was drawn to the Sexual and Reproductive Health program (SRH), because he didn’t know anything about HIV/AIDS except that it was a deadly disease. He and his best friend, Moses, joined and became Youth Peer Providers (YPP), leading efforts to spread health information to peers throughout Kibera.

Becoming a YPP opened doors for Erick that he hadn’t even imagined. Due to his hard work in SRH, he was given first priority for a college scholarship when CFK launched its Education Program in 2010. He eagerly accepted the opportunity and began to look into potential universities. He settled on the Kenya Institute of Mass Communication, a notoriously selective school for aspiring journalists. Though he was denied admission at first, he repeatedly asked the admissions office to reconsider. After witnessing his interest and enthusiasm for journalism, they decided to admit him.
Erick enjoys telling stories and has done so for CFK by reporting on CFK’s activities in the community. He strongly believes that stories have the power to transform his community. Now having graduated
TRUE TO HIS NATURE, ERICK IS GIVING BACK TO HIS FAMILY
from university, he is thrilled to have his first full-time job at Royal Media, where he works as a reporter. He credits CFK with teaching him the skills needed to succeed in a professional environment and inspiring his interest in journalism. He still lives in Kibera, where he shares a two-bedroom co-op with friends. And true to his nature, Erick is giving back to his family by supporting and serving as a role model for his sister, Linet, as she makes her way through high school.

HAND-WASHING STATIONS SET UP IN KIBERAN HOMES
form of disease prevention is the one that works best. With support from Ronald McDonald House Charities®, this initiative sought to reinforce the importance of keeping one’s hands clean by making it easy to access clean and safe materials for hand-washing. Community Health Workers set up hand-washing stations in Kiberan homes and developed a media campaign (using posters and stickers) to spread the word throughout Kibera.
Since CFK’s Trash Is Cash Program was founded 9 years ago, the Economic and Entrepreneurship Department has grown significantly, offering several business training programs in addition to its regular trash collection service. Launched this year, the Work Readiness program—developed in coordination with UNC’s School of Social Work—addresses yet another economic challenge for people living in Kibera: the ability to find formal work. With 22 in the first cohort, this program aims to provide participants with hard and soft skills needed for the workplace, while connecting them with internship placements and certificate or degree courses in a field of their choice.

Jump rope is more popular than everâ€”in fact, due to the efforts of CFK and partners, it is now recognized as an official sport in Kenya!
