Children and youth from the slums of Kawangware and Korogocho come together to speak about what is important to them and they can’t wait to have you as their audience at St, John’s Catholic Church in Korogocho.
From Kawangware we have an impressive drama based on the everyday experiences they face at home. We follow the story of 2 children from home and school and see their unique struggle, hopes and dreams.
The Children come from a community organization, Community Organisation Development Youths (CODY) and the drama project is facilitated by Maisha Yangu (www.maishayangu.com), an organization that aims to bring the views and ideas of children forward through art and drama.
The youth of Korogocho have been working on a few short documentaries, dances and art exhibitions through Smiles Africa, (www.smilesafrica.com) a local organization that encourages youth from all over the world to volunteer and intern within the community in a way that directly impacts issues in Korogocho.
The price of Ksh 500 you pay will help us invite more people from the community for the show, as well as make the 3 organisations involved work on more shows this year that encourage children from the slums and streets of Nairobi tell more of their stories through art music and drama.
We encourage you to book in advance for a one-of-a-kind show.
