TAMBUA TALANTA WAKILISHA MTAA project uses arts as a vehicle to promote social change and economic empowerment among vulnerable youth in the coastal region.  More specifically, the project builds the professional capacity of the participants, develops their hard skills with the goal of gainful employment in their respective fields, and empowers them to be leaders and agents of social change in their communities.  The project beneficiaries include but are not limited to dancers, poets, authors, musicians, playwrights, and fine artists.
