Inganzo Ballet, a group of teenage musicians from RwandaAfter the Ballet Inganzo UK 2002 tour, INSHUTI-UK was set up after the first tour of Ballet Inganzo to the UK in 2002 in order to develop the potential of the Ballet and to use the profile of the group to instigate associated cultural, educational and development projects.

In July 2003, three founding members of Inshuti-UK travelled to Rwanda to visit the Ballet and set up projects that will help their wider community in the long term.

Projects include:


Rwandan schoolThe establishment of a friendship programme between Rwandan schools and UK Schools Communications will allow the two cultures to gain a wider understanding of each-other, and it is hoped that the UK schools will be able to provide material assistance through books, clothes and fund-raising.

friendship programme between Rwandan and UK Schools Assistance to local HIV/AIDS projectsAssistance to local HIV/AIDS projects such as the 'Association des Jeunes Scolarisé contre le SIDA' - run by a young team committed to educating their peers in the principles of safe-sex and to confronting the local taboo against condom use.


DrumsInshuti-UK are working to create a channel for these African drums to be brought to the UK for resale, with all profits going back to Rwanda to help the community. The development of Ballet Inganzo, a group of teenage musicians from Rwanda will be shortly be touring the UK sending out a powerful message of unity and reconciliation, and introducing UK audiences to one of Africa's most established yet least exposed musical traditions.

School projectSix members of Ballet Inganzo travelled to the UK in July 2002 for a month long series of performances and education workshops.
