“Get On Your Bike and Save The World”. This is the message from Wafalme, a group of young Kenyans who wowed judges to win the Artists Project Earth  Youth Vision Award as part of the One Minute to Save the World international film competition. The youngsters, from impoverished shanty towns across Nairobi came together to highlight the planet’s environmental problems.

The APE Youth Visions award offered a prize of £5000 for the best film. 18 year old band member, Dickson Oyugi, says “education about the environment is a lifetime investment which has no retirement age”.

Wafalme were supported in this venture by the Slum Talent Trust which helped the young people film, edit and produce the winning video.
