The international exchange program spans over two decades, with testimonials and impact stories from artists who work their way out of poverty, crime, unemployment among other social challenges.
Speaking to a Seif, a member of the world renowned and fan favorite Black Blues Brothers, he expresses, “I never thought that I would have had the many opportunities that I have had so far, were it not for the mentorship and chance that I got from Sarakasi Trust. I have performed in well over 300 cities globally, and I am just so grateful for the international exchange program…”
While executing this program, we also engage performance experts, performers, instructors, trainers and choreographers who offer
supplementary training, alongside what we already train our artists in.
We thank our partners and friends, particularly Mr. Alessandro Serena for a long standing relationship with us, for creating endless possibilities for our artists internationally. While on tour in Kenya on May 2022, he remarked, ” It has been my pleasure to work with Sarakasi Trust for over two decades, because of the outstanding discipline that you instill in the artists. It is remarkable what you guys have been able to do for the industry, and it is my hope that we shall continue working together, because the horizon is wide enough to accommodate more….”

We hope to keep creating more of these opportunities for our artists, especially because this work aligns with our vision of empowering more youth, both economically and socially.
