My full name is Lucas Oduor from AYiERA iNiTiATiVE Organization. I was born and raised in Korogocho slum and currently living there.

I joined AYiERA iNiTiATiVE in 2008 as a participant and later on – after completing my secondary education back in 2015 – I decided to give back to the organisation and my community as a volunteer.

I am the head of volunteers at the organisation and also a photographer at Ayiera Initiative. I like taking photos and telling my stories in pictures.

AYiERA iNiTiATiVE

AYiERA iNiTiATiVE is a Community Based Organisation (CBO). It was established with the main aim of positively transforming poor communities (Korogocho slum and its environs) and to improve the lives of the less privileged children and youths of Korogocho slum by using sports specifically slum footie – a small football game initiated by Ayiera Initiative, as a tool to achieve the above mentioned aims; sport in this case being used as catalyst for positive social change and development. The organization also empowers disadvantaged children of Korogocho slum and its environs by engaging them in academic, sports and art programs and activities.
