Uweza works in Kibera, the largest slum in Nairobi, Kenya and home to an estimated 500,000 to 800,000 residents.

 

The majority of Kibera residents live in poverty and face challenges in their daily lives such as poor housing quality, lack of toilets and running water access, poor provision of waste disposal services, and lack of access to quality healthcare.

 

It is estimated that more than half of Kibera’s residents are below age 18. The major challenges affecting Kibera children and youth, as expressed by the youth themselves, include lack of access to education/school dropouts, teenage pregnancy and early marriage, unemployment and lack of job opportunities, prostitution, crime, and drug/alcohol abuse.

FIRST TRIP

 

Mr. Omar Morineau in collaboration with Ms. Valary have organized a couple art teaching events to children located in and near Nairobi, Kenya.

 

These students will enjoy the first activities of the Oam Curriculum just as students located in the Pleasanton and Tracy Art Studios experience them.

 

Through this outreach program, we will also be making donations on behalf of the guardians and students of Oam Studios Art Academy. The children taught in Kenya will be receiving art materials and a generous amount of money in the form of a gift certificate to a Kenyan art store.

 

The organizations that will be helping us organize this event will also be recieving a donation from Oam Studios’ guardians and students from a percentage gathered from the tuitions paid.

 

During Mr. Omar’s first trip he will be meeting with other organizations to plan on strategies to continue our relationships across the seas and hopefully make these types of events happen in the future. It is Mr. Omar’s hope that our teachers & perhaps our older students will eventually have the opportunity to travel and work in Kenya to bring our art lessons to Kenyan children.

 

Mr. Omar will also be traveling the Game Reserves to document the beauty of Kenya for a series of paintings that he aims to eventually sell to further fundraise for future Oam Studios Outreach Programs in Kenya.
