Mike wants to make a difference in the world around him
In Mike's workshop he is teaching a number of street youths to make art! They are using various materials, but mainly banana fibres, which is Mike's speciality craft. The art workshop is keeping the young people busy most of the day and keeping them off the streets - at the same time as teaching them a skill that they can use further on. The art is being sold in Denmark (Europe) and locally.
You are welcome to visit the workshop and the art shop on ololua road in Ngong, to see how you can help in making a difference in the world - one child at a time.
To train the needy youth of Ngong streets. To equip them with the necessary skills to make them self-reliant through art.
To minimize the crime and drug abuse among the youth around Ngong and to accelerate positive growth and development of the town.
To get the youth off the streets
To teach skills in various arts and crafts
To teach basic entrepreneurship and business skills
To empower the youth to be self-sustainable
The Road Ahead
After a short break at the workshop, we are now ready to resume classes and the artshop in Ngong will also soon display the wonderful art made by our students and teachers.
We are constantly working hard to make ends meet, as the funds are low - and before the students have been trained the income from their art and crafts cannot contribute to the running of the skills center.
We constantly depend on donations from local and foreing visitors, and you can help in many different ways.
We also welcome visitors to our workshops and artshop in Ngong Township, and we hope that you will be willing to tell friends and family about our small but very 'hands-on' project, that directly help the youth from the streets and into a lifestyle that is worth continuing.
