#ThisIsMyKenya: Safaricom 2016 Desktop Calendar

the Magunga
Still on matters Capture Kenya 2015, this year we did not just come up with one calendar, but two. The images were too fantastic to be kept in a folder somewhere to be used later on. The first calendar was the main one, to be hanged on the wall next to your graduation portrait. The second calendar is a Safaricom 2016 Desktop Calendar, the kind that stands on office desks right next to the pen holder and computer.

However, the motive is still the same; changing conversations. An invitation to look at things differently; to shift the national focus from the bad and ugly, and amplify the almost silent whispers of the good.

Ladies and gentlemen, This Is My Kenya.
