Can you help?
The Akpe Cultural Centre provides free tuition to the children of Kokrobite, who are often unable to pay for classes.
The centre was not created to make money; its aim is to generate the wealth that comes from keeping and sharing deep cultural values and from developing artistic skills that can change lives.
That said, there are still expenses to meet and teachers to pay. Local adults and those who visit the centre from beyond Kokrobite help defray those costs, but our margins are tight and we are always grateful for any monetary donations we receive from those who support our mission. These help us serve more local kids.
