Description

The family may be the most important social unit in East Africa. However, as young people move away from their villages to big cities, the strength and support families offered are lost. This video, filmed in Kenya, shows the traditional family, the challenge of the city and the ways in which parishes in Nairobi are trying to become welcoming families to newcomers.
