In 2007, Wairimu Gitau dreamed of starting a community radio station broadcasting in Sheng for residents of Nairobi, Kenya’s Mathare slum. Seven years later and her dream is closer to becoming a reality as she builds ties in the community and hopes to soon receive funding.
Building its presence online, Mathare Radio is now a household name in the slums of Nairobi.
