One of the major themes of Matatu Express is empowerment. It's about people taking charge of themselves and their communities. Sometimes that takes a helping hand. Here's a way for you to contact the people involved in the film directly. You can reach out and kick in a donation, a small loan, volunteer, or maybe just get in touch with them directly to find out more. It's up to you; but remember - what seems like a small gesture to you can make an enormous difference in somebody else`s life.
Jah Hill brought to light the wonderful work that Pamoja FM does in Kibera. It is an amazing community radio station that provides essential discourse and culture to Kibera.
You can tell from the soundtrack of Matatu Express, that the Hustlers' possess a unique talent. But they need to pay for equipment and studio time. They also deserve major props and encouragement for their impressive sound, so contact them through their facebook page - and remember to `like`them, post on their wall, or email them directly.
