To be shown at El-Nahar Theatre, the production is made possible thanks to The Littlest Lamb, an NGO that has worked avidly to shatter the stigma surrounding orphanages in Egypt.
After months of singing, dancing and pure hard work, the children at Obour City’s Birdrock orphanage will present their first play, ‘A Christmas Carol’, at Downtown Cairo’s El Nahar Theater on January 15th.
The production is made possible thanks to The Littlest Lamb, an NGO that has worked avidly to shatter the stigma surrounding orphanages in Egypt, and opening doors for at-risk children from underprivileged communities through a myriad of programmes that nurtures their creative and emotional intelligence. Among them is an Art and Music department, developed over 12 years and flourishing especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, giving children like those who live in Birdrock the opportunity to express themselves in ways they otherwise couldn’t.
Founded by Mira Diab with support from the Ministry of Social Solidarity, Birdrock is the heart of The Littlest Lamb community, providing a safe haven for 13 families of six children. The home also serves as a rehabilitation hub and a creativity centre, filled with all the resources, support and guidance the children need to flourish.
