It focuses on the informal settlement of Kibuye, one of Kampala’s 63 slums, capturing everyday life and documenting how technology is helping the community participate in decisions that affect their quality of life. Historically, the Kampala Capital City Authority has had little information about the make-up of the city’s slums — and what it did have was outdated.

But Remy has managed to escape the shacks and lives in a small government-built apartment, with 14 members of her family. Her home also doubles as a makeshift clinic. Along with delivering babies, Remy is responsible for delivering paperwork. She continues her training, takes classes on birth control, helps a young girl bury her stillborn baby, and along with family planning advocate Jane, educates women to have smaller families. Meanwhile, a few kilometers to the south of Remy's clinic is Beseco slum with a population of about 45,000. There, fisherman and father of nine, Gener Pagtabunan struggles to feed his family by trying - mostly unsuccessfully - to catch fish in the polluted harbour. His wife Lorna tries to supplement their income by selling fruit and vegetables from the front of their tiny shack. But it is a struggle for the growing family to make ends meet. Lorna, who wants to ensure her 21-year-old daughter and mother of three does not make the same mistakes she did, takes her to get a contraceptive injection. About the series: This six-part series follows residents of Manila's Tondo slum as they live, love, survive and aspire in some of the world's toughest living conditions.

1:31am UK, Tuesday December 13, 2011 Alex Rossi, India correspondent India's poor are being priced out of slum areas in Mumbai with some shacks being sold for more than £50,000 ($78,091.10). The Dharavi slum, which is home to more than one million people, used to be on the edge of India's richest city. But as Mumbai expanded it now enjoys a prime centrally-located position. Residents of Dharavi can get anywhere in the traffic choked-city relatively quickly. We were shown around one dwelling by Raju. His house is tiny but he shares it with his wife, children and parents. There is a vibrant community life in Dharavi slum Its size though has not stopped him getting an offer of £53,000 for the property even though he does not own the land underneath the building. "There is great interest here," he explains. "There is a commercial complex next door and that complex wants to expand so my house is now very valuable." Mumbai's shanties began life as clusters of illegal dwellings on public property, including parks, roads and pavements. Politicians realising the number of votes on hand made them a permanent feature of the landscape by providing electricity and water. The Dharavi slum is also home to many flourishing businesses and has a unique economy worth hundreds of millions of pounds. As the rag shops, metal factories and food kitchens have become richer so have their owners. Sheik Yusuf, a builder, can afford to leave but says moving out is not an option in a city where the average commute is measured in hours not minutes. But the slum which started as a place for the economically destitute is now out of reach for many. Rajendra, a local politician, fights for the rights of the poor. He says many people now have no chance of ever finding a home. "Land costs more, nobody can afford it. It means the person struggling for the livelihood for their day-to-day livelihood is not in a position to come here. It is unaffordable." It does of course create questions. With India's population continuing to grow and many people migrating from the countryside to cities like Mumbai, where will all these extra people live?

This film explores how Uganda’s National Slum Dwellers Federation (NSDF) is working with local NGO ACTogether to mobilise slum communities in Kampala. It focuses on the informal settlement of Kibuye, one of Kampala’s 63 slums, capturing everyday life and documenting how technology is helping the community participate in decisions that affect their quality of life. Historically, the Kampala Capital City Authority has had little information about the make-up of the city’s slums — and what it did have was outdated. ACTogether and the NSDF have engaged the residents of the slums, helping them to map their own neighbourhoods, and detailing both the demographics and the locations of physical structures such as toilets. ACTogether set up forums in which residents and other stakeholders, including city authority officials, use the knowledge gained from mapping to discuss issues affecting the community, empowering residents to start taking control of life within the slums. ACTogether is also keen to increase the involvement of academics in the slums’ future planning. It initiated the “Urban Studio” project a partnership with Makerere University in which students spent time interacting with residents and learning first-hand about life in the slums — something that was missing from their academic courses. http://www.scidev.net/global/cities/multimedia/better-life-ugandan-slums.html

Slum residents in Manila clashed with police and demolition crews on Thursday. Their homes are being torn down for a new construction project that has been years in the making. At least two people were injured on Thursday as slum residents in Manila clashed with a demolition squad sent to raze their homes for a new construction project. Illegal settlers threw rocks, bottles and debris at the demolition team. Residents also charged at policemen armed with shields and truncheons. [Dita Flor Santos, Community Organizer, Sanlakas]: (Tagalog,female) "The residents will not leave - this is the step we are taking. They have decided that they will not budge until the government holds a dialogue with them." Illegal settlers usually resist relocation to less populated provinces due to lack of jobs, high transportation costs to the capital, and poor amenities.

Korogocho slum which lies in the north eastern part of the city is home to thousands of low income earners majority living on less than 80 shillings a day.    With high levels of poverty and unemployment health care is largely the burden of the government. But in Korogocho, the story is a twist of what it should be.All most 90% of the population here are living at the bottom end of the poverty ladder. They epitomize the expression abject poverty, as each day is a struggle for survival.
