This feature-length video transports you deep inside the slums of Nairobi, Kenya and Baraka Women's Center where over 1000 women living in extreme poverty find the resources to transform their lives.

The women's compelling stories dramatically reveal the resilience, joy, and hope their Center inspires.

This video testifies to the power of a Women's Center that has achieved critical mass.
