Viva con Agua (VcA) is a charitable organisation based in St. Pauli, Hamburg (Germany), campaigning for clean drinking water and human sanitation worldwide. Since its existence VcA together with the United Nations World Food Program ensured access to clean drinking water to more than 500.000 people. Besides the social projects VcA also always tries to initiate links between the people in the project countries and the donors using the universal language of music, art, and football.
During the trip to Kenya the local musicians Octopizzo, Sarabi, and Onejiru will work with Marteria and Maeckes from Germany. The aim of the trip is to create a song together as well as produce a documentary photobook with the journalist Marcus Staiger and the photographer Paul Ripke and a cinematic documentary from the view of a Kenyan director, focusing on the particular approach and method of this social and cultural cooperation.
In cooperation with the United Nations World Food Program and One Fine Day Films
