GROUNDTRUTH INITIATIVE / USA: MAP KIBERA TRUST Since 2009 American Ground Truth Initiative has been working on a project in progress entitled Map Kibera Trust. The aim of the project is to map the informal urban area of Kibera in Nairobi. In spite of the fact that more than 250,000 people live in Kibera (the exact number is unknown), there are no exisiting maps of the city and practical info has been very hard to get for the locals. By teaching local youngsters technology enabling them to search for and share information, a growing network of local data, digital maps and online news channels has been established over the past six years. 108  NAIROBI
