The container arrived!
After a long and dangerous ride from Dar-Es-Salaam to Malawi, our container arrived on thursday, 12.03.15 in Salima. Afori Chipungu, the academy for expressive arts and our 3 exchangestudents brought the instruments as well as some office material from there to TTC.
Our container for Malawi
The collected music instruments (keyboards, organs, pump organs, guitars, flutes, drums, xylophones..) were packed into a big container on November 29th. In collaboration with the project "Zpiatso Secondary School", which provided school supplies and footballs, we managed to fill the container.
It is now on its way from Antwerpen, Dar-es-Salam to Lilongwe in Malawi. It will probably arrive in Selima this January.
