Singer Madonna alongwith her children visited the town of Kibera in Kenya, home to Africa’s largest slum. The 57-year-old singer shared some images of a trip to Kibra, also known as Kibera, with Shining Hope for Communities, a charitable organisation which links free schools for girls to services for communities such as clean water and free health care, reported Female First.

Alongside one picture of young children she simply wrote: “Striking a Pose in Kibera! Rebel Hearts.”
