Ballet school in the Kibera slum (Kenya) – August 2019

In August 2019, Pier Giorgio Regazzo and Catherine Habasque traveled to Nairobi to work with and support the young ballet dancers of the Kibera slum of the Project Elimu from Mike Wamaya.

It has been and emotional and deep experience that some of you have followed through our posts on Instagram and Facebook.

The discovery of the life conditions in the slum has been life changing and the strength and kindness of the people and the kids we worked with far above our expectations.

We worked with almost 200 children every day and created a piece for 30 of them that will be used to raise funds for the center and the ballet classes.

We also decided to support financially one of the children so that he can pursue his growth in Ballet outside of the slum. We are hoping it will help him realise him dream of becoming a dancer.

We are planning to go back to Kibera again as soon as possible and develop the work with this beautiful project and its amazing children.
