Episode Info

"The problem is that the people who send aid don't know where it's going," says Fred Oginda, a resident of Kenya's Kibera slum, in this documentary about international anti-poverty projects in Africa that may not be helping the people they're meant to. A plan to build modern housing in Kibera meets local resistance as residents fear that the project will benefit the well-connected, not them. In the west, neighbors worry that a rice farm's planned reservoir will cause their lands to flood.
