At the beginning of this month, students throughout Kenya returned to the school for the first time since March 2020. Photographers Atieno Muyuyi and Mufadhal Taib Jee checked in with three Uweza program participants at home and at their schools in Kibera to follow their journey back to school and learn what the return has been like for them. Calmax and Simon Peter participate in our art program and Shirleen is a member of our girls’ club.

Calmax:

“I started at a new high school last January and had not even made friends before coronavirus came and we had to go home.”
