Biko Macoins on Effecting Change through Lenses

This Week on IbuaSpeaks we host Stephen Simiyu, popularly known as Biko Macoins Mashillingi founder of Slum Photography.
Born in the capital city of Kenya he has been brought up in one of Nairobi’s slum areas. At first his family stayed in Mathare,before relocating to Kibera where he resides to date.
Biko has his share of experience with people reacting ignorantly to the fact that he is from the slums and even treat him suspiciously. He was then driven by the desire to change the stereotype that people have towards the slums and formed slum photography. 

In 2014 Slum Photography was voted as The Influencer of The Year at The Social Media Awards Africa.

The Slum photography Exhibition dubbed ‪#‎PigaPichaMtoiAsome‬ was successfully held at the MJ centre in 2015. Most recently Slum photography was featured in Spain’s leading newspaper.

He will share on using photography as a tool for social change with our very own @laittara.

Nerima Wako on Youth and Leadership

This Week on Ibua Speaks, we host Nerima Wako, she shares on Youth and Leadership particularly at this juncture as Kenya heads into an election.

Nerima is a Co- founder and Executive Director of ‘Siasa Place’ –a political hub, dedicated to creating an environment that enables women and youth in Kenya to actively engage with the political mainstream. It is Nerima’s humble opinion that proper politics is essential for us (both political leaders and voters) to achieve our set goals in the country and continent.

Her vision is to influence youth who normally shy from politics and change their mindsets by highlighting the correlation between politics and day to day living. She believes that good politics makes public policy more efficient, effective and makes bureaucracies more responsive and accountable for meaningful socio-economic development.

Nerima is also the founder of ‘Visionaries Aloud’ an organization that focuses on creating African docu-series, a platform where both talent and viewers can come together to be educated, discuss issues and invoke social change.
