Matthew Mckenzie was at the Karibu educational centre in the London borough of Lambeth Brixton on 3rd May 2014 to attend the “Health and Well-being Event” run by the Africa Advocacy Foundation & the Community Therapies and Training Services. With help from the Rafiki Project and Safer.
The event featured discussions, presentations and art exhibitions plus poetry. The event was educational and informative on a range of health topics being mental health, HIV and Female Genital Mutilation. Plus there was a ground breaking theatre in Education performance by a group of young actors titled “Are you positive?”
Matthew has done great audio and video blogs of the event. They are very informative and the plays and poetry are so very moving. Well worth watching and listening to!
