Abofra means child in Twi (local parlance). The Abofra Art Project is a platform that offers many benefits and foremost is how the arts grow the imagination of children especially the deprived. Through imagination, children generate ideas, and ideas are the engine of today’s global economy.
We at Abofra Foundation, believe that by embracing creativity in children, they then embark on a journey create and innovate.
1, Fosters children’s creativity and develops their empathy.
2, Cultivate children’s imagination, reduce violence, and re-mediate suffering.
3, Bring together wonderful people from all over the world to share and learn by exchanging creative/cultural ideas with our students in Ghana to shape their future.
No need to be a professional at dancing , music , drawing, painting, poetry, etc. Just come with a passionate heart for children and love to empower them through creativity.
The Abofra Art Project, is an all year project. The training is every day, between the hours of 3-6pm. Reason is most children in our community close from school by 2pm, so by 3pm they are all set and ready at Abofra Foundation to be creative and have fun.
Local/International volunteers for The Abofra Art Project, are required to bring along any creative tool/object ranging from drums, guitars, colour books, traditional instruments, crayons, drawing books, speakers/blue-tooth speakers for music/dance, water colour etc
