Slum World TV: A Window into Residents’ Lives in Buenos Aires’ Slums

Residents of Argentina's largest slums have been given an hour-long TV show to share their experiences, called Slum World TV.

Residents of Argentina‘s largest slums have been given an hour-long TV show to share their experiences, called Slum World TV.

The show, which airs once a week, is filmed and produced by residents, and has been launched to provide a spotlight on what life is like in the shanty towns of Buenos Aires.

Stories stretch from topics of discrimination to crime and everything in between. The makers of the show even allow people to give messages to politicians in order to request improvements to living conditions.

It also shows the bright side, the children playing together, the people drinking coffee together, and the regular lives that are lived there, which, they hope, will stop potential employers from discriminating against residents.
