Summary

ARTs Education is essential in a child's brain development. They teach children lifelong lessons and the basic understandings that practice makes perfect, collaboration leads to success, and that all problems can have more than one solution. Our most popular program, the Kibera Ballet Club, has shown positive outcomes where some of our students have managed to achieve major scholarships to join Universities and prestigious schools in Kenya and internationally.

Challenge

Majority of children living Kenya's biggest informal settlements Kibera, mostly orphaned or single-parent families, have limited or no option at all when it comes to better education as their studies are often disrupted with various factors i.e Gender Based Violence. Access to menstrual products for the girls. Access to mental support platforms. Lack of safe spaces for physical/ artistic activities.

Solution

We have been offering Free Dance Classes to the children living in the informal settlements of Kibera. We work with children aged 5 years to 18 years. Currently we have 419 children undertaking our Ballet and other Dance Classes. Our Program has shown positive outcomes where some students have been given scholarships to join universities and also prestigious schools in Kenya and internationally.

Long-Term Impact

A significant number of Beneficiaries will learn how to deal better with conflicts and Mental health. Through the development of dance and soft skills the young people will develop a sense of pride, independence and achievement within Kibera. Physical health will improve as well which supports mental health.
