Like each of the 450 Community Health Volunteers supported by Concern Worldwide in Korogocho, Janet lives in the locality she serves and was selected by the community. That way, she understands the particular challenges faced by her neighbours.
On her daily rounds, she looks out for people who are vulnerable and in need of support. She offers advice and refers them to specialist help.
Janet is well respected. As she walks around the streets of the slum - the poorest in all of Nairobi, she greets people with an enthusiastic wave, some with a warm embrace. In one hand, she carries a colour-coded MUAC band which helps indicate if a child is at risk of malnutrition, in the other, her mobile phone.
That's all she needs. The rest she carries in her head and heart.
