Every child is creative and talented though they may not realise it. At Abundance school, we want to help children to find their own particular special talents. Local performing artists will spend a day interacting and inspiring our children: through dance, drama, singing and art, culminating in a concert that every child will take part in in some way.
Our children have low expectations of themselves. This project aims to turn this around through confidence-building and performing using art, music and drama. We see it spilling over into the whole life of the school.
This project will help our children to see themselves in a positive way, enabling them to live to the full, using and developing their talents.
This will help the developing culture of the whole school. It will help to ignite the creativity within each of our children at Abundance School. The children will experience a world beyond the every-day struggle that is life in the slums of Nairobi. It will also enable us to buy creative materials such as art materials, drums and other musical instruments that we will be able to reuse and benefit from for a long time to come.
