THE PROJECT IN DETAIL

Objectives

Support to the artistic activities of the ASEM Centers in Beira, Mozambique.

Beneficiairies

300 public elementary and middle school children supported by ASEM.

Activities

The project consisted of providing artistic and cultural activities in two public schools in the poor neighborhoods of Manga and Makurungo, in Beira, Mozambique. Carrying out these activities in school represents an excellent educational opportunity for the children to value local culture, and keeps them safe from the dangers of the streets, as well as providing healthy activities for their free time.

The activities were conducted by eight young monitors/artists, many of whom are ex-beneficiaries of ASEM shelters who took part in traditional African dance courses supported by AMG.

The activities were provided daily during the course of 2012, alternating traditional dance classes with theater, percussion and drawing, for two hours each day in both schools.

Along with the courses the project sponsored small festivals and artistic exchanges between schools in the city and the province of Sofala (of which Beira is the capital).
