James Chemose Ekwam

James Chemose Ekwam is a mentor and educator on photography and film-making to children and youths in the Mathare slums in Nairobi, Kenya, where he himself grew up. He helped design Zoom Magazine as a part of the Usanii Lab. At the Usanii Lab, he also focuses on helping youths of the Kakuma refugee camp, one of the largest refugee camps in the world, and the Turkana community in an action endeavor, Youths Against Poverty. Because many of these children do not have any access to Digital Media due to government neglect, this endeavor aims to teach them communication design, photography, and film production.
