Defining girlchildVoices through creative arts

In Zimbabwe,a vast of young women and girls have gone an extra mile in transforming their lives through Arts. World over we need to motivate young girls to use their talents as step stones to success.Art and creativity can be used as therapy aganaist stress and hardships . Children practicing and developing their creative talent can earn a living and supoort their community ,their families and their own education. Remember a creative society automatically becomes a peaceful and tolerant society . Art enables girls and women to express their voices and challenges without stereotypical boundaries.

A lot of young girls and young women have turned into succsesful models ,dancers ,singers ,poets ,literary activitists and actors.The role young girls are taking in execelling freedom of expression and self liberty is highly commended.In Zimbabwe our project Girlchild creativity continues to nature young girls and women through creativity and arts motivation activities. Every september we organize Girlchild Voices Fiesta program which is an affliate to 100 Thousand Poets for change celebrated by 190 countries Worldwide. We are looking forward to have a wonderful activity in 2013 as we are to define Voices using photograpghy,visual arts ,poetry ,dance and theatre. Girls Transforming the world through artistic and creative prowess.

We look forward to join hands with those partners and individuals who would want support financial ,creatively ,morally in these activities. We have other programs that motivate girls in their lives. Our thrust is using arts and creativity as tools of societal transformation.

Great

Hi MBIZO,

Wonderful article. I have an NGO in livingstone Zambia I AM ONE IN A MILLION and did not know about your program or that young girls are able to make a living actually in Zim doing modeling, singing, acting etc. That is wonderful and you are to be commended. And yes, the emotional release from feelings and stress is a healthy way to deal with this.

I am just amazed at your success and wish you well.
