August is a pivotal for children and artists alike in Kenya! This will be the first art camp that the artists will prepare and run independently… actually it will not be one art camp- but three! As interest increases and word spreads, communities have approached the artists who have been involved in the camps and so they already have commitments to the slum communities of Kibera, Kangemi, and Kawangware!
The three camps will happen on Thursdays to Saturdays (9 am to 3:30 pm daily) with grand celebration on Saturday. Our dates are August 16th -18th, August 23rd -25th, and August 30th – September 1st and the numbers for these camps has exploded! Our average expectation per camp is 500 children, making the impact of these camps reach 1,500 children with creativity of the arts as well as building their value and understanding of love (our camp theme!).
While the artists are working hard to source for funding, they have been able to find build space and enough volunteers, but are still sourcing for enough funding to provide lunch for the children and supplies for the camp.
***If you are interested in assisting with these three camps please send a check to: The Center for Transforming Mission and earmark check: Nairobi (August Art Camp 2012) and specify if the moneyshould be used in a certain way (e.g. sponsorship money for 2 children in honor of ___; money for one lunch meal)
