Is extreme poverty reduced in 2015? The Korogocho slum residents debate on this Number 1 Millennium Goal. How far has the government and the country achieved this goal? Are there any concrete plans to reduce poverty for us? Can we feed our children and let them go to school now better than in 2000? And what can we do ourselves, when nobody else will help? One of the residents says: “Believe in your abilities, try to get out of poverty yourself. Don’t wait for the government to help you.”
