Young people’s voices... grassroots comics from Kenya

Mtazamo wa Vijana - Young people’s voices on current issues in Kenya is a publication compiled by Youth Alive! Kenya in Nairobi. It contains some of the grassroots comics which were produced at comics workshops in Nairobi in 2011 -12. Participating organizations were Kamukunji Paralegal Trust (KAPLET), Gay Kenya Trust, Undungu Society of Kenya, Kamukunji Community Based Organizations Network (KCBONET), U-TENA and Youth Alive! Kenya.  18 activists from these organizations were trained to make grassroots comics and thereafter to run comics workshops themselves.

The comics in the publication are a reflection of the issues the Kenyan society is grappling with, and more specifically, the youth in the society.

The cooperation betwen World Comics Finland and the Kenyan organizations received funds from the Finnish Foreign Ministry.
