Dharavi Slum in Mumbai, India
Urban slums and other urban low income areas are not only found in Kenya but also elsewhere in Africa. Large slums are also found in many of Asia`s major cities (e.g. Mumbai in India, Manila in The Philippines, Jakarta in Indonesia, Karachi in Pakistan, etc.) and in Latin-America (Caracas in Venezuela, Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, Lima in Peru, etc.). More than one billion people live in slums. Although in Europe and North America slums no longer exist, many cities and towns have sections which can be described as planned low income areas.
