Hands of art, through art these children will become contributing members of the society, and, through art they will explore their own lives and just become better people for this.

Art has become an important way in which Kimbilio has worked with children.  Working alongside Congolese artists, art work has been used as a way to help children express the experiences they have been through as well as to enjoy and explore their arty side!

Kimbilio hosted an art exhibition in March 2009 and have been involved in other exhibitions organised by the art gallery at Lubumbashi Museum.   Most of the children had been sleeping on the streets less than a year previously so to now see their art work being admired by the Minister for Children and Families and the town Mayor and many others was a great boost for them.

C’est à travers l’art que Kimbilio travaille avec les enfants. L’art aide en effet les enfants à s’exprimer, à relater les expériences qu’ils ont vécues et à développer leur côté artistique. Tout cela en travaillant avec des artistes congolais.

Kimbilio a accueilli une exposition d’art en mars 2009 et s’est engagé dans d’autres expositions organisées par la galerie d’art au Musée de Lubumbashi. La plupart des enfants dormaient dans la rue moins d’un an auparavant; le fait de voir maintenant leur travail artistique se faire admirer par le Ministre de l’enfance et des familles, par le maire de la ville et par beaucoup d’autres encore a donc été très stimulant pour eux.
