Slumming It!

Slumming It!

Carymoor’s very own shanty town, a replica of Kroo Bay in Sierra Leone, is a unique experience for students to investigate how some communities survive in a world full of pollution.  To walk in their shoes for a brief moment is enough to portray how humans negatively impact their local and global environment and how some people adapt and fight for a sustainable future. 


This also gives an opportunity to reflect on our own society and values; bringing about many questions:  What are your basic needs?  What challenges do you face? How does your life compare to children living in a slum?
