Kibera Kids Girls

The Dadas Lead Art Contest is an initiative that seeks to celebrate the International Day of the Girl to raise awareness on the issues girls face. The 2017 theme was “What is Girls’ Success?”. Our entry, “Student Leader: Purity Adhiambo”, won Top Honors in the Photography category and was featured in the exhibit on October 11, 2017.

To celebrate this great achievement, we produced a companion exhibiton featuring our female students and their amazing work. The exhibit opened to the public on January 11, 2018, at Alliance Française, Nairobi.

In less than two years of exposure to cameras and supporting technologies, these girls learned how to expertly use cameras, and to teach and support others to do the same.
