Skating an alternative to crime in Kenya slum

Nairobi roller-skating initiative for children is helping to make neighbourhoods safer.

    A new roller-skating initiative in the slums of the Kenyan capital has been helping in making neighbourhoods safer.

    The Hope Raisers initiative is training more than 50 children to give them an alternative to crime.

    The founders were inspired by their own upbringing in the slums of Nairobi.
