Dear Mishari,

If you are interested in the subject of slums, you may read and view 
videos about the work of Prof. Alfredo Brillembourg:


This man is part of the Urban-Think Tank (U-TT). This organization has 
got the practical know-how of redeveloping slums by their dwellers 
themselves after some additional training in construction. They also 
have got the technology of re-planing, dealing with local authorities, etc.

Several of their projects turned slums into nice districts with minimal 

I was at the conference of Prof. Alfredo Brillembourg. He said that 95% 
of humanity lives in slums, and consequently the history of 
civilizations happens also in slums. They invest into this work serious 
thinking and practical effort.

Best regards,
