Welcome to Sanaa Academy

Sanaa Arts Street Academy (earlier Happy Center) is a non-governmental organization, established in 2010 for helping youth and children living on the street. It is based in Ilala, Mchikichini, a small community in the middle of Dar es Salam.

Our idea is to give free education to everybody, to offer a free training in arts to poor children. Sanaa is only run on a volunteer basis, all activities are lead by teachers with professional skills, though. Children and youth can participate in acrobatics, traditional music (drums), traditional and modern dance, painting or drama.

Everybody is welcome to our centre and we are happy to let you experience a real local culture! Support the community and get a great experience you won’t forget.
