For an intimate understanding of what life is like for young people in one of the poorest places on earth, check out this video from the World Food Programme's website. It was created by Molly, a 12-year-old girl who lives in the Mathare Slum in the Kenyan capital Nairobi. With a camera from WFP, she documents her daily life, and offers a window into living in extreme poverty.
