To have classes where students go through photography classes organised as practical workshops. Over a period of 20 weeks the students would get highly targeted training that would make them market ready. Also incorporated in the course are business training and personal development.

EXPLAIN YOUR IDEA

The course would be 20 weeks long. Every week there would be a fresh task that the students have to tackle which would count as grading. Completion of the course would mean that the students would have a ready portfolio that they can use to get work. They would also get a website done along with social media presence.
This course would target the urban refugees of all genders.
This intervention would help the students be able to earn money in addition to having a medium for expression.

WHO BENEFITS?

Those who would benefit are the urban refugees i.e., the students along with their families and their dependents.
In what would be a stretch; Kenya as the host country benefits as there shall be more artistic people adding to the Kenya's cultural mosaic.

TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOURSELF

I am a Kenyan photographer based in Nairobi.
I am not affiliated with any organisation I do however have people I collaborate with and I would work with in this endeavor.

IS THIS AN IDEA THAT YOU OR YOUR ORGANIZATION WOULD LIKE TO TAKE FORWARD?

  • Yes, I have implementation capacity and am interested in and able to make this idea real in my community.
