Over the past year project elimu has built a solid talent development platform with an active social emotional learning component for young people living in Kibra through our weekly free arts activities. Our art program includes ballet and African dance, arts and crafts as well as music is followed with an average of 267 children weekly.
Through our Ballet program children have gained scholarships to various prestigious schools in Kenya and abroad. A research, conducted by Birmingham University, demonstrated the impact of our program on the transformation of children in Kibera.
Ever year we organise community exhibitions and showcase within Kibera for our wider community Audience.
Our project has been covered by many news outlets, including international ones like CNN, The Guardian, and Euro News. This has helped us advocate for access to extracurricular activities in Kenya and beyond to a global audience in Kenya and beyond.
