Photo blog: At work in Blantyre’s Ndirande Slum

Can slums really improve people’s lives for the better? A new web documentary series produced by Dutch journalist Ralf Bodelier has found that rural dwellers in countries like Malawi often view slums as a way to emerge from extreme poverty. In a separate blog post, Bodelier recounts the dynamism and opportunity in the Ndirande slum in Blantyre, Malawi. This accompanying photo blog gives a snapshot of life inside Ndirande.
