Our Current Projects

We are currently working together with the Community Based Organisation "Kibera Creative Arts" (KiCA) in building and running their creative arts center (including music school) in Kibera, one of the biggest slums in the world, in Nairobi, Kenya.


 

 

Building the "Kibera Creative Arts Center / Music school"

Together with us and our partner startsomewhere.eu KiCA wants to build a solid Creative Arts Center (incl. music school) building in the heart of Kibera.

Music and art lessons and teacher training

Every week, musician members of our NGO are volunteering to give online lessons to mostly self-taught talented young artists in Kibera. The young adults are representatives of a positive Kibera with their music and they are also already teaching kids and teens. We also provide them with teaching material and knowledge of methodology, as far as it suits their needs in their culture and community.

Paying teachers for KiCA

Because of the local volunteer teacher's need to earn the bare minimum for survival with day labor jobs, they cannot yet ensure consistency in their music and art teaching at KiCA. We help enabling continuity by setting up permanent music teaching jobs, which help to involve more children, grow the organisation, and work on solutions for KiCA to become self-sustainable.

Micro-scholarships

We are collecting donations to provide very gifted and enthusiastic individuals with a small additional income for 6 months that helps them buy their own instrument, pay for learning materials and carry out an artistic project. Furthermore we volunteer in mentoring them individually online to help develop their full artistic potential.

Join the journey!

All donations to our organisation will be used where they are currently most needed, either in one of our crowdfunding projects or for working and learning materials. Our NGO-members are working entirely on a non-profit voluntary basis and do not get any money. Furthermore, we keep our organisational expenses (mainly for publicity, like printing flyers and posters) as low as possible to offer the people in Kibera maximum support with our projects. We appreciate every contribution, however small. You can also share your time instead of your money. Here is how you can support us:

Donate

Via bank transfer. If you would like a donation receipt, please note that we need an extra email to finances@crecoco.org from you, containing your postal address, the date of the transfer and your bank account holder's name.
