by ELISA SEDNAOUI FOUNDATION
The Elisa Sednaoui Foundation was launched in Luxor, Egypt in April 2014 with the aim to nurture children’s creativity, and develop their own unique potential through hands-on experiences with the arts. Today, the programme focuses on three components: weekly after-school classes, youth workshops with artists, and adult facilitation training programs. Why focus on the arts? Not only does it transform the early social cognitive development of children, but it also facilitates self-discovery, curiosity, acceptance of difference and an interest in lifelong learning; all whilst building a sense of community.
