Dancing is part of me now!!

"Ever since I joined this dancing group, I feel at home and I feel more confident about my future. I love dancing and I want to be a professional dancer, I am always excited about our meeting every Sunday" says Olivier a 14 year old

One of the major goals of this dancing group is to bring together young people in Muyogoro area, in the Southern province of Rwanda during their holidays and teach them traditional dance as a way to keep them busy and keep them away from bad company. So far the group has brought in 3 former drug users.

Every sunday meeting before the dance training we educate the dancers about Sexual and reproductive health, drug abuse, gender balance, saving and receive guidance from the elders of the dance group.

Furthermore, the group has started a saving scheme where a member is allowed to save as little as 50Rwf (0.01US$).

The dancing group is now targeting growth and would like to recruit more members and become an exemplary group that can break out of poverty in their village and show other young people it is possible.
