Kenya’s University of Nairobi Confucius Institute (CIUON) on Thursday hosted slum children in order to expose them to Chinese culture and language.

Xiao Shan, director of CIUON said that children from the Emmanuel New Hope Rescue Center in Nairobi’s Kayole low-income area experienced Chinese calligraphy, paper cutting as well as food and other forms of Chinese culture.

“We want to ensure that children from disadvantaged backgrounds are also exposed to new and unique cultures,” Xiao said.

The event was organized by the Emmanuel New Hope Rescue Center, Chinese Embassy in Nairobi, CIUON, as well as the Chinese mobile brand Infinix as a demonstration of common commitment to caring for children. Enditem
