Kenya – Nairobi: Shangilia 2017

Two post-graduates from Alanus (M.-C. H. & B.H.) with experience in Art Therapy look for the opportunity to test a motivation-course for street-children from Shangilia. After her main-role in the film „ Don’t Cry, Child of Africa“ in 1993 the Kenian actor Anne Wanjugu started in 1994 a project for children out of a local slum to feed and to educate them to promote their self-confidence.

In 2004 the Cap Anamur Club of German doctors bought some ground for the Shangilia-group for a school and sleeping accomodation; additionally from 2009 onwards the activities are supported by a German Shangilia Foundation . In the start of 2017 Shangilia cares for about 250 underpriviledged children.

With the managing director of Shangilia Nairobi, Japheth Njenga, a test for painting  was arranged for the time of the Nairobi FoodWaste Conference to see in how far art-therapy could become part of the future Shangilia education.
