In a few weeks I’ll be launching the Nairobi Play Project, a creative computing program implemented in partnership with the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations, which equips urban refugee youth and Kenyan youth in Nairobi with technical skills (STEAM), 21st century skills and a peace-building model to support the local integration of urban refugee youth into Kenyan society. More to come!
This project has given me an opportunity to reminisce about the first GMin Innovation Lab launched by my colleagues Janice Williams, Mamhmoud Javombo and myself in 2014 at the Prince of Wales School in Freetown, Sierra Leone. We were lucky to have VICE UK there to document our progress and the incredible work of our youth. What a throwback!
