Violins needed for Credo alum starting violin school in Senegal

Credo Alumna Anna Wolle ('12, '15) will move to Senegal (in West Africa) this summer to launch Teranga Strings , a project that will begin with a free summer violin program for forty children in Dakar, the capital of Senegal. The children will hail from two existing non-profit organizations: L’Empire des Enfants, which houses sixty formerly indentured servants, and SOS Village d’Enfants, which houses over one hundred orphans.

Teranga Strings will provide students with shared violins, small group violin classes, and large-group meetings. All students will be encouraged to perform in a fall showcase concert with local musicians, poets, and dancers to share their talents with the Dakar community. Teranga Strings will continue into the 2018-19 school year, and gradually incorporate more students and music teachers into its community.

Credo is pleased to be donating two violins to Teranga Strings. If you or someone you know has a violin or viola (any size) that you would like to donate to this project, please contact Anna at . See for more information.
