Classical Ballet School Education Project In West Africa


The story of Michaela DePrince’s journey from poverty in an orphanage in war torn Sierra Leone to prima ballerina at the Dutch National Ballet is an inspiration to young girls all over West Africa.
Her portrayal of strength, self-reliance, confidence and power are the key elements of female empowerment that we want young girls in Gambia to aspire to and identify with.

Empowering & Inspiring Young Girls With A Ballet Education


When girls are educated, they gain the skills, knowledge and confidence to break the cycle of poverty. An educated girl will marry later, have fewer, healthier children, and will earn more money that she can re-invest in her family and community.
Our mission is to help these young disadvantaged and underprivileged girls in Gambia to expand their horizons, explore their creativity and build the friendships, confidence, self esteem and discipline to live a better life.
