Equipping Kiberan youth with multimedia skills

by Carolina for Kibera, Inc.

Kibera Worldwide is multimedia storytelling project led by youths from Carolina for Kibera. Using digital cameras, youth tell stories of their communities while learning essential tech skills.

Over the past couple of months, Kibera Worldwide has been working closely with the various programs in Carolina for Kibera as well as the wider Kibera community. Being the voice of the youth in Kibera, it has taken in its stride to ensure full coverage of everything that goes on in the organization and the community at large. The past months have seen the team update blogs about important events from community meetings to the 10th Anniversary celebrations of Carolina for Kibera. The team also worked alongside the Producers of CFK documentary chasing the Mad Lion to give useful feedback and supporting the final interviews and shoots that will for part of the documentary. 

Over the next couple of months, the organization will facilitate targeted training as it assists Kibera Worldwide to operate in a more effective way. The process will entail the reorganizing functions within the program to allow the utilization of the different skills of the team members. 

It is also worth noting that a few team members have since joined media schools for advanced training in journalism and media studies. This will come in handy as the demand for their products grows.

Equipped with their Flip cameras, Kibera Worldwide (KWW) members are capturing video and photos for CFK’s many programs and initiatives. KWW is helping CFK tell the stories of their hundreds of volunteers at soccer tournaments, community clean-ups, Binti Pamoja meetings, and much more. Their passion for storytelling through photography and video shines through as they connect the community of Kibera with CFK’s supporters from all around the world. Most recently, KWW supported the crew of Chasing the Mad Lion (, CFK’s soon-to-be-released full-length documentary. KWW worked around the clock with the documentary crew to shoot CFK’s soccer tournaments and players who will be featured in documentary. Not only is KWW helping with special intiatives, like Chasing the Mad Lion, but KWW is also capturing many of CFK’s other programs in action. Thank you for supporting a program that empowers Kiberans to tell the stories of their community.    

The Kibera Worldwide team welcome it's newest member when recent UNC grad, Andrew Johnson, landed in Nairobi last week. Andrew is an experienced storyteller and has a passion for videography. He'll will work with KWW to develop their video shooting and editing skills. And, of course, the youth of KWW will be Andrew's greatest asset in navigating the streets of Kibera and learning the ins and out of Kenyan culture.
