Niyo Cultural Centre staged a thrilling performance at Goethe-Institut in Kigali, Thursday evening.

The show was both a fundraiser and the launch of Adoption in the Distance, a drive aimed at adopting some of the street children.

Charlotte Binenaun, who was among the guests at the show, said seeing young kids putting up a great performance, was heartwarming. Started in 2012, the centre is comprised of 60 children from the ages of 4 to 20 and has an art gallery in Kacyiru. It depends on donations from well-wishers.
