We, Ankwa-Roots e.V., need your support for the new building of the Osu Klottey music and dance school, our partner organisation in Accra/Ghana.
The coloured octagonal school, called also "Kwaabuette" (rainbow), was very collapse threatened after the extreme rainy season in 2013. In 2014 we have decided to diminish the ailing timber house carefully and to establish, instead of it, a stable stone house. We have respected the very original octagonal form of the building and have maintained it furthermore. The last big working step is the completion of the cover construction and roof structure.
A roof for the rainbow!
The school is in the centre of the capital directly by the sea. It became a centre for musicians from all over the world, also for many children and youngsters from the neighborhood. The centre is directed by Nii Adjarh Torto, musician/drummer in the royal family in Accra/Osu as well as football trainer and social worker.
The other planning of the new school contains the equipment of a charitable recording studio as well as creating sleeping possibilities for visitors and volunteers from Europe.
We are very glad about becoming a part of our supporter's team!
All sponsors receive an official donation certificate and are held up-to-date about the project development.
Primarily, we would like to create a „space of meeting“ in which visitors from all over the world can dive into the African music and her dances - a space where different cultures meet and exchange „through music“.
We greet you warmly!
