Working with the youth from the slums in Nairobi is a tricky affair. It calls for patience, tolerance and a high sense of knowledge about; their basic characteristics, unpredictable changes in what they like or dislike and the ability to cope with these changing trends in their overall behaviour. Working with youth in the slums enables one to understand that their indulgence in social vices is only a cry for attention. Young people love inclusion. They like being recognized appreciated in whatever they do and encouraged.
It is evidently a fact that youth within the ages 15-35 years are a resourceful group in terms of their creativity, intelligence and vigor. In this regard therefore, the society is challenged to realize the potential of this energetic group so that they can also participate in the maintenance and sustainability of their respective communities. This is only way that they would feel they are part and parcel of their communities and hence get a sense of belonging.
