Slum TV is a grassroots media organisation based in Mathare, a large slum district in Nairobi, Kenya which is home to 500,000 people.
Slum TV produces audiovisual material ranging from documentary reports by local reporters to dramas and comedies made by young drama groups. The fundamental aim is to give the community in Kibera and Mathare a way of documenting and highlighting what happens in the district, for a local audience at first but then also internationally.
To further professionalise their training offer, Slum TV is at the forefront of the ASMO (Alliance of Slum Media Organisations) network. Together with five other media organisations from the slums, they formalised a certificate level Film Technology Course in collaboration with a Kenyan University (KCAU), TVETA, PEN and Africalia.
