Ghetto Exposed focuses on a small group of youth in slums and selects on talent and motivation. Ghetto Exposed is based on the local situation and shows the strengths and talents that are hidden in slums (exposing the positive side). By training and supporting the select group locally, Ghetto Exposed ensures that the youth can distinguish themselves and in the long term provides in their own livelihood. Ghetto Exposed richt zich op kansarme jongeren in sloppenwijken en selecteert op talent en motivatie. Ghetto Exposed gaat uit van de lokale situatie en laat de krachten en talenten zien die schuilgaan in sloppenwijken (exposing the positive side). Door de geselecteerde groep ter plekke te ondersteunen en gericht op te leiden, zorgt Ghetto Exposed dat deze jongeren zich kunnen onderscheiden in hun eigen land en op de lange termijn zelf in hun levensonderhoud kunnen voorzien.

General Info

bestuur: Suzie Geenen Caroline Slot Laurien Holtjer Ons verhaal: Artistiek talent is een geschenk, een gave. Stel nou, je hebt dat talent, en je kunt er je beroep van maken. Wat is er mooier dan dat? Gelukkig kregen wij die kans. Maar in een land als Kenia is dat voor mensen met eenzelfde talent absoluut niet vanzelfsprekend. Zonde. Want talent is er volop, bijvoorbeeld in de vele sloppenwijken van Kenia. Het is vaak het enige dat kansarme jongeren er hebben om zich te onderscheiden. Arm, slecht geschoold en zonder geld voor een vervolgopleiding maken ze al helemaal weinig kans om aan het harde leven in de sloppenwijk te ontsnappen en het leven te leiden dat ze zouden willen. Juist daarom willen we met Ghetto Exposed die 'verborgen' talenten laten zien: "Exposing the positive side". Maar tegelijk - en nog belangrijker - willen we de pareltjes onder die getalenteerde mensen helpen om hun artistieke talenten te ontplooien. Daarom leiden we deze selecte groep op tot professionals. Samen met hen gaan we op zoek naar de mogelijkheden om een markt te creëren voor hun talent. We willen dat ze er hun beroep van kunnen maken, er geld mee verdienen, er een toekomst mee op kunnen bouwen en zo hun leven kunnen verbeteren. Dat verdienen ze! Tijdens ons verblijf in Kenia heeft de eindeloze energie en motivatie van de jongeren ons enorm geraakt en geïnspireerd. We hebben gezien dat als ze de kans krijgen om iets te veranderen dat ze die dan met beide handen grijpen. Samen met een Keniaans team gaan we aan de slag om ons doel te bereiken en zorgen ervoor dat iedere euro goed terecht komt. Steun ons. Steun Ghetto Exposed: "Expose your positive side!"

Wondering what is happening at Ghetto Exposed? Our dance and photography projects are being evaluated by an independent party. Once we have the report we will start making concrete plans for the future again. However, we have started to brainstorm and meet potential partners again and in terms of graduates we see that many of them are very active in the dance and photography field in Nairobi. We are very proud of you all!

We are super proud at GE Photo student Stephen Ouma. Not much time left before the whole world get's to know his work! Steve just heard that he won the African Rising Youth Photo Contest. This price will take him to a conference in Mozambique, together with a lot of other African journalists and policymakers from Africa and beyond. The contest sought to capture Africa's opportunities, innovation and challenges through the eyes of Africa's youth. The winning pictures will be showcased at the forthcoming conference "Africa Rising: Building to the Future", organized jointly by the Government of Mozambique and the International Monetary Fund on May 29-30, 2014, in Maputo, Mozambique. Jury report: 'Based on the originality and impact of your submission, our judges decided that you did an excellent job of capturing the conference theme.' Yesterday Steve already heard that his image is one of the best 36 in another competition and now will be exhibited in Vienna 23-25 of June and after travel to all Austrian Embassies!! And believe it or not. The images that won were shots from when he just started at Ghetto Exposed and taken with a small snapshot camera. Great shots but he even has better ones. Come and see Steve's and the other students great work it at our exhibition 17th till 21st of May at Michael Joseph Centre Nairobi!!
