Who are we?

Mwinda Kitoko allows you to live your dreams instead of dreaming your life

Mwinda Kitoko (beautiful light) is a non-profit organization founded in 1994. It is a member of the Platform of African communities. As the name says, beautiful light, the organization has the aim to highlight various cultures. Mwinda Kitoko attempts to demonstrate the diversity of cultures. In order to understand each other better and to build a further integration, Mwinda Kitoko provides an opportunity to understand with mutual respect cultural differences. For the organization integration means mutual exchange without any age restriction. The objectives are as follows:

• Ensuring the promotion of culture without discrimination in terms of race, religion, gender, etc..

• Organizing conferences, debates, seminars and exchanges.

• Facilitating communication between communities and between generations.

• Mentoring young Africans in their search for their identity, leisure time and school advise

• Creating projects that facilitate the integration in Flanders and Belgium.

VOLUNTEERS

Talentendag is looking for volunteers!

The Talentendag project arised from the tragedy of two African youngsters who, out of boredom, took a swim in the Scheldt on July 29th of 2001 and unfortunately drowned (Merveille Antonio 7 years old, Vedrine Vambanu 10 years old). If these youngsters would have had a hobby, maybe this tragedy could have been prevented. This incited non-profit group Mwinda Kitoko to create a project called "Talentendag". Herewith youngsters of principally African origin get the opportunity to share their hobbies and talents, not only with each other, but also with the outside world. The most diversified forms of art and culture are gathered on one night, in front of a big audience. The 10th edition of Talentendag will take place on Saturday January 17th of 2015 at Bozar Brussels, and this cannot pass us by unnoticed!

ACTUALITEIT

15 NOV

Elephantsdream

Elephant’s Dream schetst een breekbaar portret van Congo. De film loodst je binnen in het leven van drie mensen op drie locaties: het treinstation, het postkantoor en de brandweerkazerne. De verhalen zitten verankerd in het koloniale verleden en ook de schaduw van Mobutu is nooit veraf. Het heden haalt echter snel in.
