It’s one thing to isolate yourself in a flat in Edinburgh, quite another in the Kibera Slum in Nairobi, where over 60% of the city’s population live.

Grant Smith, an ordinary bloke with a day job as a quantity surveyor, ran a charity in Nairobi for over twenty years in his spare time and then began businesses to end the endemic poverty cycle. He is now pursuing the incredible ambition of trying to develop affordable housing for the very poorest into Nairobi.

A great read on mission and calling, written with a wry sense of humour and complete honesty about his failures and mistakes, this book will bring a smile and inspire, and will help put our current crisis into a world perspective.
