Mathare Social Justice Center
At the Santuri Electronic Music Academy, we offer more than just teaching students - it's also about harnessing our ethos of community.
As part of a campaign called Art for Social Change, SEMA partnered with a community organisation called Mathare Social Justice Centre (MSJC). Aside from human rights work, education, podcasting, advocacy, and after-school programs for kids, MSJC have also led ecological justice initiatives to strengthen their community.
In 2022, some of SEMA’s students and staff worked with Mathare youth to clean up corners of the neighbourhood, plant trees and medicinal plants, and paint murals. This was a really fun way to get the students engaged while sensitising ourselves on ecological matters.
