A school in Kenya’s biggest slum is gaining national recognition for an informal music therapy project that helps children overcome traumatic experiences

The yard at Magoso school is bordered by high walls decorated with paintings of Scooby-Doo and Bob Marley. Today, under a blazing morning sun, it is packed with hundreds of children singing and clapping to the beat of drums. A group of teenage girls clear a space in the crowd, and begin to recite a poem in English. Full story.
