“ It was such a great journey for me and the participating schools to learn about the little known river which passes through the city and yet is so significant to our history and heritage, the Nairobi River. Through this project we got to learn that Nairobi city got its name from the river, that the Maasai culture is central to the river and how privileged we are as a city to have a river running through the middle. Sharing my work with students and inspiring them to produce artworks based on our river was a great privilege. This project definitely gave all of us new eyes for our river.”
