The gala

Every two years, the gala of the ULM takes place in "La Maison de la Culture" in Tournai.  The opportunity to revive the enthusiasm for the Kumba project in front of a large audience.

For the 2003 gala we sang a song by Tiken Jah Fakoli, "Y'en a marre", our faces painted in the colours of the Cameroonian flag.

For the 2005 gala we sang "Quitte le pouvoir" (by Tiken Jah Fakoli).  There was a great atmosphere in the audience!

Each year, in May, the students sell chocolate croissants to raise money for the Kumba project.  Each student takes orders in his neighbourhood and delivers them after school.  The profit and motivation of the students have been growing since 2003 !
