Commissioned by Hivos International through their SDI Programme, Crayon Rainbows is a documentary film that traces the growing divide/breakdown between teachers and their vocational devotion to their students in Kenyan public schools as told through the eyes of the children interviewed.
We held creative workshops that gave the children the platform to express their feelings about what school means to them. Apart from the interviews, the children partook in drawing, painting, play dough, photography and craft making exercises as well as song and dance. We traveled around the country and visited 5 schools across Lamu, Samburu, Turkana, Nairobi and Tharak-Nithi.
What we found was a crayon box worth of dreams and disappointment nestled in a rainbow of hope.
