Visit MADaboutART, a social enterprise using art and creative expression to ignite children’s imagination and achieve social change. Visiting children will have fun too, walking or joining in the fun at MADaboutART; singing, painting, beading, whatever the activity of the day is (fully supervised). Dam-se-Bos is a community helping itself to a brighter future.
