Lana Wong and Francis Kimanzi started the shootback project in August 1997. The Project consists of 31 members which is gender sensitive having 15 girls and 16 boys.

Only a year ago, I had nothing to call my own. I was losing my day job to attrition in the company. The company was not doing too well fiscally and the downsizing was imminent.

The best is yet to come:
