San Francisco – On Sunday, October 5, come see Tesfaye Tekelu, dance and aikido instructor, and Meshu Tamrat, theater director and gymnastic trainer, as they present a variety of colorful performances never before seen in the United States.

Their five-week nationwide tour promotes the Awassa Youth Campus. This unique center offers a range of learning opportunities for young at-risk students, through dance, theater, music, art, academic tutoring, and the discipline and nonviolence education of aikido. Its OneLove Theater carries out HIV/AIDS awareness campaigns through free public performances all over Ethiopia.

With your help and our collective hope we can sustain and nourish this mission– assisting children orphaned by HIV/AIDS, educating the region about HIV/AIDS prevention, and offering alternatives to violence in the solution of social problems.

    I was a part of hosting the tour here in Berkeley CA and it was very worth it in all respects. Our NGO, Aiki Extensions, directly supports AYC and the Awassa Peace Dojo. The work (community building) is essential, the children (vulnerable in every possible way) couldn’t be more important, and the medium (aikido, dance, theater, and other arts of peace) is a joy. Please show your support! Brandon from Berkeley (
