Stories: Series III

Series III: Stories from Kenya

We were honoured to travel to Kenya (Limuru, Nairobi, Nakuru, and the Maasai Mara) in early 2022 to witness and document the first-person stories of extraordinary women.

WSWWH aims to challenge the perpetuated notions that see the African continent through monolithic lenses by publishing first-person video stories of Kenyan emerging leaders, in particular women working in diverse fields and distributing them to a global audience to disrupt stereotypes and shift deficit narratives.

At the heart of this project lies its intention to share first-person stories as a tool of self-expression to build community through mutual understanding, use storytelling as an educational tool and promote Pan-African collaborations.

We regard these stories as a moment in time for the African narrative, a moment that can cultivate connections and cooperation.

We are grateful to the Citizen Diplomacy Action Fund for partial funding of this series.

We would also like to acknowledge the additional partners who helped to make this series a success.
