In 2015 UNHCR launched the ‘Artists for Refugees’ initiative to promote and nurture musical and artistic talent and ability among refugees and asylum seekers in Kenya. The project aims to empower refugee artists, by providing skills training to promote self-reliance, with the hope of giving refugees an opportunity to derive a living from their talents. To date more than 300 refugees have been trained in music and 100 in visual arts.

Join Octopizzo, the lead music artist, and musicians from Kakuma and Dadaab refugee camps and those residing in Nairobi on Sat. 25 November at 4 pm for a music concert highlighting the musical achievements of their work together.

Have you heard of the LuQuLuQu campaign – a home grown solution to Africa’s refugee crisis. Centred on the African philosphy of ‘Ubuntu’ or ‘Ujamaa’, the movement invites people to take ownership of the refugee and displacement problem through simple everyday philanthropic actions to promote self-reliance and independence.
