Speakers

Abdul Kassim, has been a Kibera resident his entire life. Growing up and being raised solely by women, he was conscience of the extreme gender inequalities prevalent in the slums. Wanting to create a more equitable world for his daughter, he started to work to change the misconceptions about girls and their abilities. In 2002, Abdul started a girls’ soccer team. The team excelled and was able to compete on par with their male peers. Though successful, Abdul realized more needed to be done to improve the quality of life for girls in Kibera so he started a school in 2006. Today, Kibera Girls Soccer Academy (KGSA) has 20 full-time staff, over 130 students, and several artistic and athletic programs. Their hope is to inspire young women in Kibera to become advocates for a change in their own community and beyond.

After Hours Entertainment

Bozak is a San Francisco Based DJ/ producer and RedBull Music Academy alum. He was given the exemplar honor and distinction of being selected out of the 4,000+ applicants to participate in the Melbourne edition of the Redbull Music Academy and one out of only five Americans to attend that year (the other yanks included Flying Lotus, Aloe Blacc, & Oddisee). It was at the RBMA that he was pushed to take his music productions more seriously. Returning from Melbourne, Bozak made the decision to make the move to San Francisco to put himself in an environment that would aid in the fostering of his own music productions and is currently prepping a number of releases to bless our ears shortly.

Attire
