This fundraising aims to finance travel costs and implement the artistic education project that AnaRaquel wants to realize in Africa's largest urban slum in Kibera - Kenya, between November 2019 and January 2020.

This fundraising aims to finance travel costs and implement the artistic education project that AnaRaquel wants to realize in Africa's largest urban slum in Kibera - Kenya, between November 2019 and January 2020.

This dream will come true in a collaboration with the project FROM KIBERA WITH LOVE, a volunteer project started in 2012 by the portuguese Marta Baeta. This educational and social project implemented in a region with a very disadvantaged community, strives for greater access to education which in this community is a luxury because most children in Kibera do not have a family that can secure their future. In January 2013, thanks to friends, acquaintances and strangers who became friends, Marta Baeta was able to ensure that 16 children were entitled to study and one meal a day.

AnaRaquel's goal is, for 2 months, to continue the work already done, sharing her musical knowledge with the children of Kibera to create a final show with this community, based on the traditional Kenyan tale "Mama Panya's Pancakes". - A Village Tale From Kenya" by Mary & Rich Chamberlin.
