Report on the African Night Event

“African Night” was held in CASACO which is renovated old folk house located in Yokohama.
This event was organized by two NGOs which are Connection of the Children (CoC) and Global Bridge Network (GBN). We planned this event to feel closeness to Africa because many Japanese don’t have opportunity to know about Africa.

About 30 guests including Ugandan, Cameroonian, American and Japanese attended our event. They enjoyed African culture, dance, food and communication with other people.
For GBN, this is our first event! We really appreciated all participation and happy to collaborate with CoC.

Towers the end of the event, they enjoyed dancing too much to stop!

CoC and GBN would like to hold an international event sometimes again, and we are also planning to organize a cultural exchange with Japanese and African children over  internet.

Beautiful Collaboration! Thanks, All!!
