become a nightmare. Population growth is causing unbelievable overcrowding. Nairobi, Kenya,
for example, has basic-series for 200,000 people but will soon have a population of 5 millions.
Mexico City is home to almost 25 millions. This overcrowding causes many serious problems:
traffic, pollution, sickness, and crime. There isn't enough water, transportation or housing. There
aren't enough sewers; in Sac Paulo, Brazil, for instance, only 40% of the homes are connected
to the city sewer system, which carries away dirty water and waste through pipes under the
ground. Perhaps most serious of all, there aren't enough jobs. One-third to one-half of the
people in many cities in developing nations cannot find work or confined only part-time jobs.
The crisis is worsening daily; that is; this time of danger and difficulty is becoming more horrible
everyday. Population experts tell us that by the year 2025, the population in cities in developing
