Behind the Lens: Russell

When Russell Kisimba was in Grade 8, his family could no longer financially support his education, and he was forced to drop out of school. We learned of this talented young man’s story and his passion to learn, and we’ve since been facilitating his education.

“Malaika sent me back to school, and I’m now in Grade 5 in high school!” Russell says.

“My dream is to become a cameraman. I’d like to combine it with computer science, and I’m determined to pursue my goal.” Russel is one of the amazing photographers behind many of Malaika’s beautiful photos, and we never tire of viewing his work. We can’t wait to see where his lens takes him next.
