Anno's One Fine Day
Anno’s One Fine Day (AOFD) is a community based organization in Kibera, founded in 2018 by Krysteen Savane as an affiliate of Anno’s Africa and One Fine Day which are two charitable organizations based in London, UK and Berlin,
Anno’s One Fine Day has developed an educational program where children and teenagers can explore their artistic abilities and art as a tool to better understand themselves and the world they live in. Evidence suggests that self-esteem and confidence are positively influenced by the young individual’s own discovery of their particular creative skills.
The UK based arts charity Anno's Africa was founded by Bee Gilbert and Andrew Birkin in 2006 as an alternative arts educational program for children living in slum conditions in Kenya and in cities and towns in northern Malawi.
The charity was set up in memory of their son, Anno Birkin (www.anno.co.uk) a young, gifted writer and musician who died in a car crash in 2001, just one month short of his 21st birthday. (http://www.annosafrica.org.uk/)
One Fine Day e.V. was founded by Marie Steimann and Tom Tykwer in 2008 in Berlin in order to complement and broaden Anno’s Africa’s engagement. Their work predominantly takes place in the largest slums of Nairobi, Kenya: Kibera and Mathare. Most of the children who participate in their program are confronted with poverty, violence and illness in their daily lives. One Fine Day and Anno’s Africa offer an alternative future for them through their encounter with the arts. Weekly workshops include such categories as fine arts, dance, ballet, theatre, music, acrobatics and creative writing/story telling. (https://www.onefineday.org/)
