WAYO 1st Annual Children's Festival

August 26, 2020 

Berkeley Castle & Berkeley Theatre

Jamii produced its first official children’s outdoors festival for the Esplanade community: WAYO (a Swahili word that means footprint, symbolizing the journey to life). WAYO brought creativity to the hearts of our youngest community members as it awakened their imaginations and touched their souls through storytelling, song, dance and crafts.
