La-le-la

*An isiZulu word that means

“to listen”

Listening is at the heart of what we do.
By listening to children’s stories  and each community’s needs, we are able to understand their  challenges and, in turn, provide creative solutions and a way forward.

Through Lalela’s arts curriculum and critical messaging component, we ignite imagination and teach children how to map and manifest their dreams and goals, launching the possibility of a different future for themselves and their communities.

Every day after-school, in the hours when children are most vulnerable to abuse of every kind, we work to break the barriers of challenge. We start early in developing the art of imagination, with students as young as six, and continue to connect the arts to everything important in a child’s life through their high school graduation.

By building our curriculum at the intersection of arts education, academic achievement and critical life skills, Lalela’s workshops activate whole-brain thinking, developing the creative potential of at-risk youth, and empowering them to become innovative role models with meaningful careers.
