Theatre group Upendo Children’s Village

Upendo Theatergroup

Our new manager, Martina Petroll, initiated a theatre and dance company in the orphanage.  “There are many traumatized children and children with low self-esteem and behavioral problems. Art and dance can be a way to cope with this, but above all to gain a better self-confidence. It is also a new form of expression for the children and also a small talent factory,” says Martina Petroll. Professional support is provided by an entertainer who works with the children once a week. In addition, the Diani Reef Beach Resort is our new sponsor for the entire project. The help is greatly appreciated! The Upendo theatre takes place every Saturday from 2 pm to 4 pm in the Upendo Children’s Village.
