We are Korogocho

“We make our way through the trash at the dumping site of Dandora, then we cross a pedestrian bridge and a rusty entrance door made of sheet metal. We find ourselves in a different world, the world of Korogocho, one of Nairobi’s biggest slums.

Houses built with rust metal sheets, mud, nonexistent sewers, terrible health conditions, and yet, people live here, they work, they study.

Korogocho is made of people, dreams, and ambitions. These ambitions are shared by the Hope Raisers, a Korogocho-based band that dreams of a future in the music industry. The song in the video is theirs.

Thousands of people, lots of faces, lots of looks. Nobody is giving in to their destiny, everybody is fighting. It’s the people we meet who make this community great, not the numbers or the countless problems, because Korogocho is them and nobody else”.
