Project Elimu was established in 2017 to fulfil the urgent need for an alternative education system for the ever-growing bottom of the pyramid school-age children and young people. Project Elimu supports young people to come together and learn from one another by exchanging ideas and experiences. Project Elimu also imparts new skills, knowledge, and information to help young people explore their potential and creativity: who they are, what they think and believe, what they want for their future, which has boosted their confidence and self-esteem.
The developmental themes that we focus on include: Education, Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights and Diversity. Project Elimu uses a creative and innovative art-based ballet dance approach to address and communicate its developmental messages, a medium that attracts many young people in Kibera.
