Finn Church Aid
Finn Church Aid is a right-based organisation with 70 years of experience and operations in 12 countries. FCA is Finland’s largest NGO working in development cooperation and second largest provider of disaster relief. We work in development, humanitarian assistance and advocacy, guided by international human rights standards and principles. We contribute to positive change by supporting people in the most vulnerable situations within fragile and disaster-affected areas. We consider three thematic areas as central to sustainable change: the right to peace (R2P), livelihood (R2L) and quality education (R2QE).
FCA Kenya is implementing a Creative Industries (CI) project, a continuation of the creative industries program pilot in Kampala, Uganda in 2020, projects in Uganda in 2021, and the digital competency program (DCP) & Creative Industry project in Nairobi. The project is focusing on digital creative industries such as animation, game development, graphic design, web design and digital marketing. This will contribute to the realization of basic human rights such as the right to life with a decent source of livelihood and the right to education. FCA Kenya will work with the youth ages 18-35 years both men and women in this project and engage the local administrators in the project area. The project is based at St. Philips parish and community centre in Jericho, Nairobi.Setting up the project in St. Philip’s parish in Jericho enables FCA to systematically develop the centre to become an important hub in Eastlands for digital creative industries trainings. The proposed Creative Industries program is aligned with FCA’s Right to Livelihood (R2L) strategy supporting marginalized groups in gaining meaningful employment. This will in turn ensure that these groups have a reliable and sustainable source of livelihood. The Creative Industries project would be an important avenue for these youths including PWD’s to earn hands-on skills that will help them to employ themselves and become entrepreneurs in the future. The right holders who benefit from the program will also impart the skills acquired to others who may not have the opportunity to participate in the trainings.
