watoto wa kwetu – “watoto ni wetu”

It is always amazing and inspiring to come across someone who has taken their dream and through it made it possible for others to see their own dreams. Jacob is one such person and through his center, Watoto wa Kwetu Trust in Mathare, he gets kids to paint what they see and imagine. Can you imagine that, a child has expression through art in a space that might not have been open for them to do that. In this space too the children can open up about the 2008 post-election violence.

Life ain't alway....s easy

The kids also take photos. There is an exhibition opening on the 24th of June 2009 at the Ramoma Gallery in Nairobi. Please go by and see the work. Or online here: http://www.myspace.com/watoto_wa_kwetu_trust
