Reaching Out With Compassion in Kibera (ROCK) helps kids in Kibera access learning material & provides a space where they can learn & interact with each other.
It also provides kids with scholarships & connects them to mentorship opportunities.
RECA Cinema Club & ROCK held a week-long workshop from 20th August to 24th August about the art of film-making with teenagers taught by different facilitators.
They were taught the basics of script-writing, how a producer guides the project, using sound to create emotions & using the camera as a tool in storytelling.
Teenagers learnt how to tell stories effectively and the importance of teamwork in film-making. Essential skills needed to train the next generation of Kenyan filmmakers telling African stories.
Finally, all the teenagers came together to create a podcast discussing 'Life in Kibera As A Teenager. It was an eye-opening experience as they all came together to share their hopes, fears & aspirations about Kibera.
Kibera is a place with a lot of talent & potential to make an impact.
The Podcast is coming soon!
