Someone asked me why I dance, my passion lies more with why I dance than dancing itself. I dance to inspire and change the lives of not only my students, but of children living in poverty across Africa.
For the earlier part of my childhood I grew up in Africa. My father tragically lost his life one month before my birth, so my mother was left to raise me alone. I grew up valuing the value water, food and health. I remember myself having to go to the well to collect water for my grandmother so that we could cook. I founded a charity called 'WallRebuildrs' aimed to rebuild the broken hearted, those suffering as a result of famine, poverty and war. Since losing a close cousin to malaria and seeing other friends and family members fight the decease became inspired to focus on fighting this deadly disease. I use my dance skills wherever I can to bring people together and make a difference. I travel around villages in Africa distributing blankets, mosquito nets, cooking materials, sewing machines and the household basics.

This summer, I held an open air workshop in Nyamirambo, where the locals had fun dancing, while receiving free mosquito nets, food and health insurance! Mosquito nets are extremely important as they can protect many lives from the deadly malaria disease.
During our charity trip to Rwanda in September, hundreds of people turned up to receive health care insurance and mosquito nets. Thanks to your donations, we covered 200 people but so many more are still in need. The price of mosquito nets in Rwanda is currently £9.50 so many people cannot afford them. We aim to cover more people so please give generously.
Health insurance was paid through Rwanda’s health insurance system ‘Mutuelle de Santé’ which allows the poor to receive medical treatment for a year for under £10. As we know, many people lose their lives around the world, simply because they cannot afford to see a doctor. This means that multitudes of locals will get to go a year without having to worry about their medical bills! They can then focus the little money they have to spend on other things such as school.
Why This Area
Nyamirambo is known for it’s high number of street children, prostitutes, and unemployment. Therefore a simple mosquito net and decent lunch is something that many in Nyamirambo struggle to afford. Almost one million people died in Rwanda during the genocide and it left many people orphaned or impoverished. Nyamirambo was heavily effected by this.
Workshop video will be out soon
