Kenya: crossing the Atlantic to learn social responsibility!

Categories: Sub-Saharan Africa, Kenya, Education, Film

Fikirte questions the central theme of the documentary [1], The Boys of Baraka: “I watched the documentary a few minutes ago and I was left with a big “Huh?” The boys crossed the Atlantic to learn from white Americans about some life-changing virtues in a remote part of Kenya. It really didn't make sense to me to take them all the way to Africa and show them the ways to be socially responsible…In the entire film, you don't see the kids interacting with Kenyans.”
