THE KUSEWERA EMPOWERMENT & EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM (K.E.E.P.)
~ We organize and provide active & creative play, for the children we work with in Malawi. This year-round after-school program aims to empower them to dream for a better future. Activities include sports, dance, music, art, creative writing, learning about permaculture and gardening, sewing and much more! When Kusewera brings volunteers on a humanitarian trip, they are involved in one or more of the following: coaching, mentoring, demonstrations, lessons in teamwork & sportsmanship, conducting confidence-building activities, creativity and encouragement for the kids. The children gain knowledge from life skills that encourage positive personal growth.
