DESTINO is an Ethiopia-based social enterprise to support underprivileged children, teenagers, and youth in developing and channelling their inner power through dance. The top aim of DESTINO is to provide excellent art education, building a professional dance academy in Addis Ababa and publicizing Ethiopian-contemporary dance culture in Ethiopia and globally. Professional contemporary dancers – Junaid Jemal and Addisu Demissie founded Destino in February 2014, with the enterprise focus on giving back the opportunity they were given to excel at a young age.
DESTINO offers free artistic education to marginalized and disadvantaged street children, youth, juvenile offenders, as well as disabled people. The income generated from performances, and from private and public donations are used to support the Ethiopian community, promote Ethiopia-contemporary dance globally, and develop social development projects. Interested parties can learn more about the workings of this social enterprise from their Facebook and LinkedIn pages.
DESTINO offers dancing for change, providing arts and dance education to young people from underprivileged backgrounds in Ethiopia.
