Living on the Move: Kinna, Kenya

Published on 27 September 2023

People who live a life on the move are aware that they are often seen as undesirable and
dangerous. The 23 people gathered at the riverside to inform the Bellagio initiative dialogue on
philanthropy and development want to put the record straight. In different ways, they each live life
on the move, some driven by war and violence, others choosing economic migration, yet others
are born into a mobile life. Their movement encompasses Somalia, Kenya, Sudan and Ethiopia,
UK and beyond. As each one speaks it becomes increasingly clear that a successful life on the
move is not a selfish thing. It generates a remarkable philanthropy.
