Who makes a difference in Kenyan lives? How?
In partnership with The Aga Khan University East African Institute and Colour In Faith, Fatuma’s Voice invites you for a twitter chat marathon.
The first TweetChat is being held on Saturday the 28th of May from 10am to 12pm. The topic is Opinion: Patriotism & Faith, how are they connected in Kenya? #YellowKE. The hashtag #YellowKE is being used to track the conversation around patriotism and faith to better understand how our differences make us stronger.
Colour in Faith is a movement toward pluralism through art and conversation. Colour in Faith in partnership with Fatuma’s Voice and the East African Institute is hosting a series of TweetChats to discuss the connection between how we identify ourselves within our society, what we feel and how we act in the world.
