"Kibera Through My Eyes" Children's Photography Project

This summer we asked a group of young people from the Red Rose School, the Green Pastures School, and the Kibra Academy to document aspects of their lives at school and out of school through photography using simple disposable cameras. A selection of the best images from this project will be posterized for a travelling photodocumentary to schools around the USA and possibly for a coffeetable book. We eventually hope to through the telling of the stories of the lives of these young people to encourage cross-cultural dialogue and raise funds to support the education of young people in Kibera and the enhancement of their artistic potential.
