'We are not wildlife': Kibera residents slam poverty tourism

Sylestine Awino rests on her faded brown couch, covering herself with a striped green shuka, a traditional Maasai fabric.

It's exactly past noon in a noisy neighbourhood at the heart of Kibera, Kenya's largest slum, and the 34-year-old has just finished her daily chores.

Directly opposite Awino, her two daughters are busy studying for an upcoming math exam.

The family will not have lunch today.

"We don't afford the luxury of having two consecutive meals," says Awino, a mother of three. "We took breakfast, meaning we will skip lunch and see if we can afford dinner".
