order to increase international awareness in the
local area, the Kanoya International Exchange
Association (KIEA) will be holding an event
called ‘Jambo! African Festa’.
The event will
feature a screening of the film ‘Chokora’ which
follows the lives of street children in the
Republic of Kenya. Terumi Matsushita, a
representative from an NGO in Kenya that is
providing support to these children, will give a
lecture and the famous Japanese thumb piano
player Sakaki Mango (whose music is featured in
the film) will also perform on the day.
We want as many
people as possible to come to this event so
advance tickets are only going to cost 500 yen.
There will be African food and folk crafts for
sale on the day as well as a photo exhibition
and drum performance from a local djembe group.
This will be an
excellent opportunity for children (and adults
too!) to gain a global perspective so please ask
your friends and family to come along too.
●Proceeds from this event
will be directly donated to housing funds and
facilities that are currently supporting street
children in Kenya.
