Out of Kibera, the world's largest slum on the outskirts of Nairobi in Kenya, emerged a Mother Theresa caliber of humanitarian Charles Mully, per wiki, "In 1989, Mulli sold all his property and businesses, and dedicated the proceeds to helping street children through rescue, shelter, medical care, psychosocial support, and education. Currently, Mully Children's Family has just under 3,000 children in their centers in Ndalani, Yatta, Kitale, Kilifi, Lodwar and Dar es Salaam in Tanzania. Since 1989, Charles and Esther Mulli have taken in more than 23,000 abandoned children." What an inspirational film ... and the short footage of the environment in Kibera at the start of the film was absolutely shocking to see.

Mully could be compared to Moses and his vision is one delivered from divinity. People deemed him insane, but he was a teacher of sacrifice, going beyond taking care of number 1's comfort and status quo.

Great movie to watch with kids, family, groups and start discussions after viewing. The story is so rare that if a screenwriter wanted to "sell it" in Hollywood, it likely would be considered too unbelievable. From rags to riches to using those riches for others and returning to a life of austere living. Not something many people would even consider, much less do and touch so many thousands of lives by doing so. The micro-climate creation to plant sustainable crops is something that science should look into and perhaps recreate on a larger scale. It could end world hunger if applied in the right places in a large-scale way. Watch it; let it touch your heart; see if it encourages you to make some small change in your life to make life better for others.

This is so good! Mr. Mully is singlehandedly saving Kenya! His compounds create their own atmosphere and ecology!

This was really painful to watch. I actually disliked the guy a lot. He treated his own family terribly and forced his wife into a life of servitude so he could feel better. If you listen to the words of his children, that's who he is, not this great guy who builds schools. So disappointing.

An inspiring life - one person's actions can change the world! The children helped by this man, his family, and the organization Mully started, will change Kenya and the world for the better. This is something that everyone should see and be motivated to help those around them.

Amazing documentary. Rags to riches story of a man who then gives up everything to rescue orphaned or abandoned children in Kenya.

This is Kibera. It is five Kilometers from the centre of the Kenyan Capital of Nairobi. It is widely accepted as being the world's largest slum. Its area is approximately two and a half square kilometers and the population is somewhere between 750,000 and 1 million. Nobody is really sure. Whatever the estimates, one thing is certain, conditions on the ground are like nothing we've ever seen before. Waste and refuse are virtually everywhere ...
===
Yeah. Of course, it started when my car was stolen by street boys, a gang, …, and I was very, very angry about these children. But when I came to discover that I was one of them many years ago, and I regretted that I did not give them help.

“I never said there’s no space for a child,” He explains. He would scan the streets at night, find the orphans and take them into his home telling them “This is your family now. These are your brothers and sisters.” And to call him “Dad.”

Mully had moved his family (in the hundreds) out to some land in the country. When they got there there was no structure, no water, nothing but land. The kids built it all by hand. But the water—they had to truck in water EVERY day from miles away. This was sufficient (if inconvenient) until the drought hit. They needed water and there was none to be had. Much like the Israelites in Numbers 20, they began to complain about their need for water. They’d already dug for water many times and found nothing, but Mully had a vision that there was water on the land, and exactly where to dig for it. The boys were less than enthusiastic, but they dug … until they hit a rock.

We’ve dug... your vision. And we have a rock. So, what do we do?
- I was shown a vision and there’s water there, so keep digging.
We hit the rock and it was an explosion (water.)

My dad was the Great Gatsby of Kenya.

I began to realize the power of having money—it’s greater than anything else.
===
I couldn’t understand why and I kept blaming those kids. And there’s was just to play and have fun in our house. ... I felt he had kicked us out and abandoned us so he could spend time with his other children that weren’t his anyway.
===
In Kenya, everyone, even the government, depends on donations from the Western world. We have got to change that… A beggar has no choices. … How can we build a project that will be self-sustaining? ... Plant trees to change our climate. More trees = micro climate and more rainfall.
===
We must keep our focus. We will change attitudes. The next step is to
transfer knowledge.
===
Big (influential) people will come here from all over the world to see what is happening.”
===
The adopted children are becoming doctors,
dentists, bankers, business people, leaders, pastors.
