    Consultancy to Train 30 FilmAid Kenya Alumni on screenwriting in Kakuma Refugee Camp

    About the project:

    FilmAid Kenya has been training media students on basic skills in journalism, Film production, photography among others. In 2020, FilmAid Kenya established Youth Media Hubs. The hubs were designed as a low-cost and sustainable intervention to address the breakdown in social cohesion, the increase in vulnerability among members of the community, and the marginalization in the media that is both a contributing factor to and a result of social breakdown. The hubs have provided a physical point of convergence for a network of support and opportunity for aspiring visual storytellers in target communities, additionally, the media Hubs have given the youth a sustained opportunity to develop their skills and their voices as creative storytellers while expanding their access to audiences and markets. Several FilmAid Kenya’s Multimedia alumni currently run their own production houses, and often FilmAid Kenya, partners and local CBOs recruit them to work on productions. Given the increasing demand for these young entrepreneurs’ services, there is a need to strengthen their skills in screenwriting to enable them to produce high-quality films.
