Bagamoyo Young Artist Center Kids

I just want to share with you some photos of the kids at BYAC.

They have nothing and they are so happy.  I wish you could see them dancing across the sand using an old bicycle tire as a hoola hoop.  This is part of the dance they do that shows the hazards of promiscuous behavior and aids.

These are the two brothers and two sisters who are artists and have dedicated their lives to helping the children through dancing, drumming, painting, and drawing.  They have no supplies to work with so concentrate mostly on dancing and drumming right now.  The money they make comes from selling their artwork which happens very seldom.  Then they end up using the money to buy food for the children because most of them get nothing to eat at home.
