2. Storytelling through Art

  • Artists are an invaluable part of every African society giving voice to the people through periods of oppression and achievement.

 

  • Turmoil on the African continent has meant the lack of flow of great traditional works across the continent in which its artists are suppressed or not provided with opportunities to develop and market their products at the true value. Tanzania is home to some of the most ancient and beautiful art in the world.

 

  • Tanzania has a remarkable position in art. Two styles became world known: Tingatinga and Makonde Popular African paintings painted with enamel paintings on canvas.

  • The motifs are usually birds, animals and flowers in colorful repetitive design Tinga Tinga is one of the many forms of Impressionism the beautiful and mysterious continent of Africa has given birth to. Unlike Western styles of Impressionism, Tinga Tinga Art gets its unique and vibrant style from the magnificent natural surroundings of Africa.

  • Artists have the freedom to use their brushes to express their thoughts in bright, eye-catching colors.

A striking feature in most of these paintings is the way the artists capture the animals of the Eastern coast of Africa, in what appears to the distorted yet a very interesting image of the original creature!


  • Preschools accommodate children from 2-5 years old.Various preschool teaching areas like basic Mathematics and English.

MADAGASCAR AWAKENING AND ARISING- KOLOINA ZAZA

Koloina Zaza, Koloina Zaza. The melodious tune had an echoing effect , leaving a mind ringtone of peace and harmony in my soul.

I will never forget the day I crossed paths with the  KOLOINA ZAZA
(Nurturing Children) campaign.

It reached out to me on travels at so many getaways. I first came across a banner being held up on the streets of Madagascar. I never knew that the person I encountered and assisted in her endeavor to hold up the banner in the strong and persistent winds was none other than Lalah Arielle Lalah Razafimandimby and her sister Lanto Razafimandimby.

[amazon_link asins=’1558762922,0226704203′ template=’ProductCarousel’ store=’exploremoth07-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’d026b5d9-42e2-11e8-8135-cba5f060e49b’]

 

Their lyrics fuelled my soul. She told me that Koloina Zaza means nurturing children. She made me aware of the dire need in Madagascar to raise new generations.

Lalah Razafimandimby
Lanto Razafimandimby

 

Lalarintsoa Razafimandimby hails all the way from Madagascar. She is a keen traveller who took on a mission to bring change to the land of her origin.

She and has lived and travelled to all parts of the world igniting a sparkling awareness of her Malagasy roots Lalarintsoa is a vocal artist, with a talent she inherited from her late father, the legendary Malagasy singer Raindimby.

Lalah has used her skills as a stepping stone into the humanitarian deeds. Her calling to the Malagasy homeland was always rooted in uplifting Madagascar and triumphantly making a difference.

The vision of Koloina Zana was clear-cut, dealing with basic needs like daily health, keeping free from hunger. Furthermore, growth and development of education was the core for developing Madagascar to the deserved utmost.

Social ills that plagued society needed to be eradicated. The Koloina Zaza mission with a purpose launched.

The aim was larger than large. Skilled personnel. equipment suppliers and donors. education campaigns and social awareness of basic human rights

The larger than large mission was not impossible. Lalah joined in unison with Universal Human Rights Network a Washington-based NGO to launch a campaign to raise funds for the youth and children of Madagascar and overcoming the obstacles of hunger, homelessness, exploitation lack of access to education and healthcare, offering Hope to a new generation.

Universal Human Rights Network came on board of the Koloina Zaza programme working together with Malagasy citizens and their families.

The Koloina Zaza mission has launched. A call out to all volunteers, sponsors and fundraising outlets.
