Providing arts and culture to children in previously disadvantaged communities.
Ensuring that they are exposed to cultural differences and that they learn to treasure their own culture and the stories that their grandparents have to tell, while also creating a link from that culture to our modern way of communicating on social media. We feel that valuable history is being discarded and overlooked. We also feel that children are "fed" too much information via technology and are not being allowed to develop their imagination. Story telling, acting and dancing are used as a medium. We focus on classic fairytales for the very young and more serious subjects for high school.
We provide a remedial class, and assist with tertiary education applications as well.
