The TunaHAKI Foundation, in association with the Kuji Project - An Urban Youth Art Program in the Western Addition and George Washington High School Dance Company presents the TunaHAKI Acrobats of Kilimanjaro, Tanzania in a benefit performance Saturday, November 18, 2006 at 7:00 PM. They will perform traditional dance and acrobatics Saturday evening, winding up a month long fundraising tour of the United States in San Francisco’s Richmond District.
All proceeds go to the building a new home and performance space for the street kids and AIDS orphans of the TunaHAKI Center in Kilimanjaro, Tanzania. A light reception featuring DJ Soulz follows the performance.

One of the children coming to America is Coleman. When he was six, his mother brought him to the bus stop in Moshi and told him to wait for her. He waited a week, alone at the bus stop, but she never came back. Now Coleman lives at TunaHAKI where he dreams of being a professional performance artist. This trip is helping build a permanent home for him and making that dream a reality.

Join Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi of District 5, and Supervisor Jake McGoldrick of District 1 as we welcome this unique group of youth acrobats to San Francisco!
