atuma’s Voice is a unique educational forum that uses Art, Poetry, Music and open-discussions to create conversations that seek solutions for social issues.

The name ‘Fatuma’ is a figurative representation of a marginalized and discriminated society.

We believe in an Africa where youth can freely express their artistic voice and contribute practical solutions to social issues. But right now the reality is that youth feel like their voice is ignored and that it doesn’t count.

According to a youth survey done by Aga Khan University and the East African Institute, 73% of Kenyans are afraid to stand up for what they believe in due to fear of retribution.

E

very week,  we bring together 100 youth participants and have discussions based on a specific social issue. During each session, a professional guest is invited to add a factual voice into the discussion.

Each forum also incorporates 10 performing artists, who present the day’s topic artistically through music, poetry, art, dance, theatre and more creative ways. By gathering artists from different ethnic groups, we foster a national art identity.

Since Fatuma’s Voice begun on 12th July 2013 (and as of 10th December 2016), we have held 142 youth forums where we hosted 1,420 artistic performers and attracted a live audience of 15,000 participants and over 500,000 online participators.
