Every year the school Saint Pulcherie of Istanbul honors a country or a continent. This year it was Africa. This is also in this context that I presented the project Kelen few days ago.

The idea is to introduce students to a new culture, interested in others people and to the world.

Thus the whole year several demonstrations took place in this direction: with the photo exhibition of Hervé Porcher on the people of Rwanda; In march Francophone Africa was in honor of the Francophonie Festival….

Throughout the year, students were able to discover different facets of the African continent through their school activities: music, choir, dance, fashion design.

The event I had the pleasure to attend was the opportunity to show all the work done throughout the year and it ended the season of the African High School.

I was really pleased to support this event. In Turkey, Africa remains a far away and unknown continent while paradoxically economic and diplomatic relations between Turkey and Africa have increased sharply in the last decade. This kind of initiative is welcomed and prolonged!
