On the 9th of March we took part in a global art project named the Inside Out Project together with an ex-volunteer and her brother. This exhibition was called the Inside OAKS Project. 72 portraits were taken. Some of them featured our volunteers, staff and local people from the Oaks Village. The objective of this art exhibition was to teach children about the importance of the environment.
DAKTARI helped to hang all of the portraits on the big market place in the Oaks and afterwards children from the local schools entertained us with song and dance. Those who were hungry were able to enjoy some delicious boerewors. The end result looked stunning and was visible from very far away. Most of the people who attended this event were locals from the Oaks or from towns nearby, but we also had some Dutch tourists who made a little detour on their roadtrip to come admire the portraits!
With your help we can continue to set up new projects and find new ways to create awareness and stimulate community development.
