Theater project

Several times our local and international volunteers have organized a theater project, giving the children in this way the opportunity to discover new possibilities to express themselves and to learn how to create scenes and pictures. Their abstract and creative thinking skills are trained by this theater project, as well as their ability to improvise. The plays they performe are written by the children themselves, allowing them to handle and find solutions to their real-life problems as well as to escape into fantasy worlds.

For example in 2004 Beate and Hannah, two German volunteers, organized a theatre workshop for girls aged 12 to 16. The workshop was run 3 times a week and aimed at teaching the girls new theatermethods. At the end of the course, the girls presented the result of their creative work by performing a play in the youth club of Deheishe, containing music, dance and acting. The show was impressive!
