Luanda, Luanda – The Art and Culture Foundation has hosted Friday in Luanda a cultural evening to celebrate the International Children Day (June 1) with about one hundred children living in the vicinity of its headquarters, in Ingombota neighbourhood.

To this end, the event included a show by “Kudissanga é a Raiz” band featuring children to play drums, and a workshop for attending kids to create their own percussion instruments, through the re-utilisation of recyclable materials like plastic and can artefacts for decoration. With the event, the Art and Culture Foundation also seeks to ensure the children wellbeing through moments of entertainment and learning. The Foundation is everyday visited by children and teenagers that have the opportunity to read, write and tell tales, draw, paint and use Internet-connected computers.
