Welcome to Ghetto Classics!
Started in the year 2008, the Ghetto Classics programme is a community programme that involves over 650 children in Korogocho – one of Kenya’s biggest slums that is home to about 300,000 urban poor.
We use music education to provide the youth with opportunities to better themselves and their community. We do this by instilling in them the life skills that come with the discipline of studying art music. Our programme also provides them with income generating opportunities.
As at January 2017 over 1200 children and young people are members of Ghetto Classics with the programme expanding to 10 satellite areas around Nairobi and most recently as far as Kiambu and Mombasa through the Link Up program.
Take a look at a few of our photos!
Following are some pictures displaying the members of the Ghetto Classic Group at performing at various events across the country. They also include many teachers and instructors who’ve generously been a part of us for a long time.
