Arts of Africa - Laurieton and Port Macquarie, NSW

In April 2014 on our KwaYa # 4 tour to Uganda something magical happened. Jenny and Tammy fell in love with the kids they met on tour. A friendship blossomed along with a deep respect for the work of The African Children's Choir in the slums of Uganda.

They came home to Laurieton on the eastern coast of Australia itchy and inspired. Itching to do something more to contribute to getting even more kids an education in Africa whilst at the same time supporting the village women of Uganda in their local industry. 

And so KwaYa 'Arts of Africa' was born. 100% of profits go to providing an education for needy kids from the slums of Africa. 

They are operating out of local markets and house parties through party plans in Laurieton, Port Macquarie.

When Louise's husband Adrian was in Uganda volunteering with KwaYa #4, Heather, Nyssa and the wonderful staff at Tiny Tots Academy in Caringbah supported Louise by taking great care of their two young boys Daniel and Benji while he was away. 

They followed Adrian's journey on the KwaYa blog and as a result became inspired to become involved with KwaYa's work in Uganda. 

When Jenny and Tammy started Arts of Africa in Laurieton, Louise, Heather and Nyssa thought it was as a great way to support the organisation and started Arts of Africa in Sydney. What appealed most was the refusal of these very special Ugandan women to accept the role of victim. 

Their use of raw materials that our society considers to be disposable, results in some very innovative and inspiring art. We also love the idea if women helping women.
