Mighty Jambo Circus
Nairobi, Kenya
By Huxta
27 Jan 2012

Mighty Jambo Circus Academy in Githurai is a professional acrobatic training program for teens and youth from Nairobi’s informal settlements. From 5:30 to 18:30, they practice handstands, juggle, and perform acrobatic acts on the trapeze, unicycle and tight rope. Via Mighty Jambo’s outreach program, the students teach workshops with kids in Githurai and perform at local schools. Githurai slum is a busy residential and market area 12km from central Nairobi, yet half of the population (of about 320,000) lives below the poverty line. Residents face problems such as a lack of adequate housing, water shortages, sanitation and waste removal issues. Many families cannot afford to pay school fees for their children. Mighty Jambo provides an alternative space for kids and youth to engage in art and sports and learn a lucrative trade .
Since 2012, when I began following the students, their stories have diverged. Milkah Wanjai, Said Mwinyi, Dorcas Nyambura, Rita Njoki and Magdaline Njeri went to perform in Europe on a 4-month contract and are now working as performers in Nairobi. Winnie and Doris decided to end their training and pursue other educational programs. Edwin Moi Mutesia, by far one of the strongest acrobats, with an electric stage presence, was struck and killed by a minibus in Nairobi in May 2013, a few weeks before he was due to leave to perform in Europe.
