A passion to preserve & promote the culture of Tanzania

Kuliku came to ADEA as a MaKuYa festival volunteer. His soon showed a keen mind for cultural/ethnological research. He joined the MaKuYa staff for 2009 & 10 in charge of cultural education.  Family financial hardships due to an alcoholic father, often requires Kiluku to support his mother & brothers.

With ADEA Boot Camp Training, Kiluku’s training will focus on preparing for ethnological work with the aim to enter the University of Dar es Salaam Oct. 2012. There is tragically little documentation of the traditional culture and life of the tribes of Tanzania. Yet, as a late developing nation, it has the opportunity to capture many traditional treasures, that more developed countries have lost.  With the passion to make ethology his life work, ADEA will support Kiluku in his academic development, as he helps us in our current efforts.  Ideally our support will take him to other countries with strong cultural preservation efforts, as well international studies.
