Where is the Ng'ombe Compound located, and what is it like to live there?
The Ng'ombe Compound is located just outside the nation's capital, Lusaka. It is a densely populated informal settlement to an estimated 90,000 people. Approximately 38% of individuals living there lack access to clean water, and about 60% share unprotected, outdoor bathrooms. The unemployment rate is very high and jobs are often scarce and inconsistent. The compound has only one government school and one clinic. Hopelessness plagues the population as there is little chance for advancement.
