We’re pleased to introduce Essamba Home Foundation, a new foundation established by artist-photographer Angèle Etoundi Essamba.
The mission of our foundation is to improve the living conditions of the street children of Yaoundé, Cameroon, through creative activities that help them escape their isolation and dismal living conditions.
Witnessing the growing number of children in the streets of Yaoundé (approximately one thousand), we decided to do something and set up a WELCOME ART CENTRE to give them a purpose in life through art and creativity. We’re convinced that art can serve as a therapeutic tool. If managed by people who care and understand, creativity works to change the lives of underprivileged children to build self-respect and provide skills to realise better living conditions.
Additional information about the foundation can be found on our website: –>>>>The website is under construction, Our apologies for the inconvenience! More information following soon.
