MY AFRICA IS peers into the soul and spirit of Nairobi through three stories of innovation. Viewers will meet game developers who create African superheroes to inspire Kenyan youth; a self-taught engineer who builds drones as a solution to Kenya’s poaching problem and trains youth in the technology to build human capacity; and two rock bands that are part of a growing rock scene in Nairobi. Along the way viewers will be introduced to the city, a restless and bustling metropolis with a musicality and energy that only locals can fathom. Meet the Africa that most don’t know but which is the reality of millions.
After watching the episode, players can test their knowledge of Nairobi, Kenya, and Africa by answering a series of multiple-choice questions using the map below. Most of the questions rely on the film as source material, while a handful of other questions require a small amount of extended research, and/or the use of critical thinking and deduction strategies.
The full community engagement toolkit includes additional activities and trivia cards with the map printed on the reverse side, which can be printed out.
