Kaloito Festival is a Non-profit Youth hub and platform founded in 2018, meant to bring young people TOGETHER, to achieve, Meaningful youth engagement, promote Social accountability and fight retrogressive cultural practices.
Kenya has a youthful rural population; the latest data from the census 2019 by the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics (KNBS) reveals. In this case, 35.7 million Kenyans (75.1%) are below 35 years, while 32.73 million (68.9%) live in rural areas.
Kaloito Festival is and will continue engaging young people in the rural Kenya, mostly in the Pastoralists regions like Kajiado, Samburu, Narok and Tana River to engage meaningfully in Governance and policy making , it is in the public domain that a lot of young people are not engaged directly in supporting county governments in coming up with relevant policies or guidelines
We use art as a form of civic engagement through dance, poetry, graffiti, theatre, music, writing, film and photography to spark civic participation through focusing attention on emerging social concerns in the country and in the process prompt action.
In the above, the platform will use strategies which the young people can best identify with, like music, art, beauty and fashion, theatre, etc.
