Our Story

We believe that every child and young person deserves the chance to discover their talents and build self-confidence through creative expression, and we are here to help them reach their full potential! Our program allows children and adolescents to explore their artistic abilities and use the arts as an essential tool to better understand themselves, their environment and the world they live in.  

Our Impact

We are convinced that learning individual creative skills decisively influences a person's path in life and significantly shapes self-confidence with regard to professional orientations and a self-determined life plan.
The long-term results prove us right. Many of the children and young people who have participated in our workshops and programs refer to these experiences as milestones in their decision-making and the bolder shaping of their life paths.

  • “Hands in the Air” by Pilocka Krach feat. One Fine Day Music Kids

    In February 2018 musician and producer, Pilocka Krach, travelled to Nairobi to write a song with the One Fine Day music club. Due to political unrest in Kibera, Pilocka had only 3 days instead of the planned 6 to create the song, “Hands in the Air” in a dusty school classroom in Kibera. Here the children worked feverishly on their lyrics and practiced the choir parts and on the 4th day they went into the studio to record their songs.

  • “Smoke Machine” by Dear Reader feat. One Fine Day Music Kids

    “Gari la moshi” is the Swahili word for train, literally translated, as “smoke machine”. Every day at regular intervals a train rushes noisily right through the centre of Kibera, Nairobi, the largest slum in East Africa. In 2015 South African singer-songwriter, Cherilyn MacNeil AKA Dear Reader, travelled to Kibera with the charity, One Fine Day, to do a songwriting workshop with kids living in the slum. Together they created the song, “Smoke Machine”, creating beats out of field recordings they recorded in Kibera, and singing in English and Swahili about the train that runs through the heart of their home.
