What exactly is the Form Ni Gani movement?
Form Ni Gani (“What’s the plan”), is a movement meant to engage Kenyans in conversations about making informed decisions about our future. The creative platform has Kenyans express themselves and discuss new ideas around the critical issues and decisions surrounding contraception. #FormNiGani tasks the youth to come up with a personal vision board and share stories of where they see themselves and Kenya by in 2063 and the crucial role of family planning in it.
The 2019 #FormNiGani movement officially launched (27th June 2019). Championed by a host of young creatives for change and progress,#FormNiGani movement uses art expression, local activations, exhibitions and social media to share personal stories. The team is currently conducting think tanks with young progressive Kenyans to identify potential scenarios Kenya is facing. These will inform debates and creative activations later this year.
