SPARK Kenya documentary: A journey through my city


This documentary is a unique fi­lm story about Kakuma residents with personal stories from Turkana host community and refugees. It highlights that while refugees and displaced populations are in need of assistance, they have capacities as well as vulnerabilities. Rather than assuming a need for indefinite care and maintenance, interventions should nurture such capacities. The documentary also places emphasis on the importance of enhancing social cohesion between refugees and the host communities (Turkana) to mitigate potential conflict. This film is the product of the SPARK Livelihoods programme which is a DFID (UK Aid) funded programme being implemented by five agencies (Danish Refugee Council, Film aid, Norwegian Refugee Council, Handicap International, and Action Africa Help International) operating in Kakuma, in Kenya.
