But Posner adjusts, taking part in a theater project designed to create a forum for the Kiberan community to explore their lives, and to eventually show the world their struggles to survive.
After this, the story gently dashes you to pieces again as you learn about Odede and Posner's astonishing work at SHOFCO, helping to provide better lives and opportunities for the people of Kibera. Election-driven violence in Kenya motivates Posner's prodigious letter writing to admissions deans at various universities to bring Odede to the United States. From Dar es Salaam in Tanzania, after escaping the violence in Kenya, Odede fills out applications and writes essays, and soon he's accepted at Wesleyan University.
While at Wesleyan, Odede decides to start the Kibera School for Girls, whose mission is to educate and empower girls. It takes enormous courage to tell the story of one's own life, and, in Kennedy Odede's case, it takes a strong heart to relive that life on paper: to remember the harsh times, the hopeless days, the despairing nights.

In the end, the duo is a powerful force for good that is giving their community not only hope, but also opportunity and vision. Obviously, I highly recommend giving this life-changing book a read!
It has certainly made me appreciate all the things that I overlooked and took for granted as an American and as a woman that was lucky enough to win the birth lottery.
