Ussoforal (which means "to join together") is an alternative arts school and dance group that was founded on March 30, 2000, in the Plack II neighborhood of Bissau, Guinea Bissau, and in Ziginchor, Senegal, West Africa. It was established as an alternative to delinquency and idleness for out-of-school children, offering the arts such as traditional dance and theatre instead. The two sites now serve almost 300 children.


In 2002, the money raised from this Cambridge benefit class helped build most of the school's roof.  In 2004, money was raised to help obtain instruments and costumes and to help organize an event to celebrate their 5th anniversary in April, 2005.  Each year, we have helped Sadio continue her great work.  Right now, Ussoforal continues to need help in securing school and sports equipment, basic medicines,  food, money to ship second hand clothing, and building maintenance.        


CLASS DONATION:  $15  in Cambridge and $16 in Concord   All proceeds will go to The Ussoforul School
