Chiku Awali has four major program components. Our dance program is known as Jo Ba Alafia, Dance for Well-being, in the Yoruba language. Obibini Asafo literally translated from the Twi language of Ghana means the African Society which represents our African music department of drums.
Annually, Chiku Awali presents an African art project. For many years it has been mask-making. The Art Center now presents a series of art projects from pillow making to jewelry making. The Rites of Passage for young men and women and the Eat Well, Play Hard projects complete the roster of programs offered by Chiku Awali.
