OPEN TEXT MATERIAL 
Theme --- living on the Edge 
Abstract 
Big cities provide big opportunities. They attract both rich and the poor alike. The poor from the 
villages are attracted by greater job prospects, better infrastructural facilities and above all an 
escape from constraining social and cultural traditions in rural villages. Urban life presents 
conditions of overcrowded living, congestion, unemployment, lack of social and community 
networks, stark inequalities and crippling social problems such as crime and violence. Many to 
those who migrate benefit from the opportunities in the urban areas while others may be left 
behind to struggle with the challenges of city life.
