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.

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.

A young aspiring actor from upcountry Kenya dreams of becoming an accomplished actor one day, and in pursuit of this and the chagrin of his brother and parents, he makes his way to Nairobi the city of opportunity. He quickly understands why Nairobi is nicknamed Nairrobery as he is robbed of all his money and belongings and left alone in a city where he doesn’t know a soul. Luck, or the lack of it, brings him face to face with the city’s criminals and forms a friendship with a small time crook who takes him in. He is quickly drawn into a world of crime as he struggles to pursue his dream of becoming an actor. Keeping the two worlds separate proves to be a challenge for him as he trudges on in this unknown world called Nairobi. This is the story of a young man who despite all odds trudges on in search of his dream. His drive and soft spoken nature are his best resources. His determination is encouraging and he is a true testament that what stands between us and our goals is us.
