Kesho Afrika-konnection between then and now

It is our aim that Afrikans not only develop positive progressive images of themselves and their culture, but also change the image the rest of the world has of Afrika: of what we can achieve, who we are intrinsically and not who we have been thought to be or who most of us have thought ourselves to be.

Mashujaa project-remembering Kenya's

pre-independence heroes and heroines

Mashujaa Project celebrates sons and daughters of our great land who, in the face of danger and adversity of from a position of weakness, display courage and the will for self-sacrifice (heroism) for the greater good of their communities. These heroes (shujaa in Swahili) are distinguished by exceptional boldness and grit.

The creative minds involved in the project used their imagination, models, available materials and their photographic and artistic skill to create the first exhibition set of 25 photos.
