EwB (and Pro Arte) shows why it is “without borders” or “how a seed planted today can ripen tomorrow”

Yamoussa of Kalabante

Dear Pro Arte families & friends

On February 3rd, 2008 EwB and Pro Arte put on a Woza Afrika Concert at the Kay Meek Theatre in West Vancouver.  This was a fundraiser for EwB and the Kalabante circus school in Guinea Conarky. The evening featured the Pro Arte dancers and a circus show put on by Yamoussa Bangoura ( Kalabante’s inspirational leader, mentor and teacher) and some of his friends.

The revenue was split between EwB and  Production Kalabante.  Production Kalabante is a humanitarian aid project which promotes and supports basic education in Guinea – Conarky. $6000 was given to Yamoussa from the revenue to develop a circus school in Conarky.  Children admitted to the school were given basic education and taught circus skills.  Cavalia  – Odysseo ( www.cavalia.net) recently played in Vancouver to packed audiences and is on a cross-continent tour. Members of the Kalabante circus school were an integral part of this extraordinary show.

Yamoussa (www.kalabante.org ) sent EwB the following message in January,2014: “The show we did in Vancouver with EwB make a big difference. I put that money in the school and also in the food for the training.”

Thank you Pro Arte families and friends – those tickets you purchased gave dreams and hopes that came true to young artists across the world!
