About Us

Hi there! We are Belén and Amaia, we study Journalism and Audiovisual Communications in Madrid (Spain). In our second year of University we went together to Molo (Kenya), to a school called Chazon Children's School were we stayed 20 days. There, our goal was to help in whatever they needed, but what actually happened was that we learnt from the, enjoyed and loved our travels trough the country on the weekends and left wanting so much more, we knew that Kenya had much more to offer us than we could offer "her".

This year we would finally be done with our degrees and for that we need to do our Final Project. Because of that, filled with excitement, we're going back to Kenya on the 18th of October to film this documentary. To live an unforgetable experience, inmerse ourselves in their roots and film all of it to share it with you!

The bags with the Africa foot logo have been being sold since August to raise money for Chazon Children's Centre, we're we would go on the first weeks of our trip. As they were very succesfull, we decided to include them on our rewards and design also sweaters with the same logo:

Where does you money go?

All the money raised through Verkami will be invested in all production needs that would come up during the trip. It will mainly be used to get the equipment needed to do the documentary: sound, lighting, filming...

If we were to raise more money than we need for producing it, we'll invest it in Chazon.

Documentary's content

With this project we want to get a little closer to this incredible country, get to know some of it's villages and communities such as the Maasai, Kikuyu, Swahili... and leanr from them.

The idea is to create a documentary based on the observation in order for you to able able to live, as if you were there, the magic of this cultures and communities. We want to use our cameras to show an intimate reallity that we would uncover as the trip goes. We would let ourselves be surprised so you can be surprised too.We want to capture their rituals and traditions most ancient and try to show the inmense diversity of cultures that find shelter in this country.

Our experience in Kenya on 2017

On 2017 Us and two other friends from university went to Chazon Childre's Centre. When we arrived ther we discovered that there was still so much to do and so many project to help at, but they were on the right traks. We found out that Molo was a village that has achieved to carry on with the little resources they had.

Every morning we would visit the school and help in the kitchen, teaching or whatever the teachers could use uor help at. In the evenings we would go the orphanage and play and help the kids with homework or house chores. On the weekends we travelled the country but we left wanting to see so much more, know more villages an specially meet more people which was what made us fall in love with the country, apart for the amazing sunsets and scenerys. And we think it, the people will make you fall in love too...

Here are some pictures from that trip!
