Working with the whole of YONECO’s cultural troupe, a really great show was made that integrated all the different skills brought by the three teams (CWBSA, Sirkus Sol and YONECO). The title of the show was ‘Dinyadira Kokoziwa’ (Happy to meet you). This artistic team performed and ran workshops for children, youth, community members, prisoners, wardens, teachers and elders in 2 different provinces of Malawi. The beneficiaries ranged from primary school children to village elders. Project Dinyadira Kokoziwa brought a great deal of happiness, joy and awareness to the communities reached in Malawi.
