Pacific Arts and Training is a registered Community Based Organization (CBO) of artists and trainers committed to positive socio-economic change initiatives through visual, performing arts and capacity building. Pacific Arts and Training (PAT) has been in existence since 2007 and operates in all counties in Kenya. PAT is a membership organization that brings Youths together fostering intercultural cohesion mainly due to their prowess in theatrical performances and engages them in projects. Due to several partnerships, PAT members have been trained on Traditional Dances and Puppetry performances. PAT artistic prowess has grown past performing art to also encompass visual arts. The partnerships also enabled PAT’s members’ access trainings in various disciplines and fields like HIV/AIDS, Entrepreneurship, Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights, Sexual and Gender Based Violence and many more from partners such as NCCK, MSF, CEFA, COOPI, ADSOCK (previously known as MEGEN), and Africa Alive amongst others. After the trainings, we engage PAT members with the aim of using artistic talents to earn a living and promote peace for economic growth.
Our target beneficiaries are youths, children, women and men who live in low income unplanned settlements in Huruma, Korogocho, Mathare and Dandora
