MASK: create and innovate for a brighter future

MASK supports creativity in young people. We believe in infusing young minds with the magic of imagination and a greater sense of tomorrow. As only those who can imagine a brighter future will pave the way to solve the world's challenges, whether it's alleviating poverty, ensuring decent employment, or creating a sustainable environment.

Innovation shapes the future, but it begins with art. Art teaches young minds to imagine and connect. When art thrives in schools, the creativity of the younger generation blossoms.

Beginning in 2007 as Mobile Art School in Kenya (MASK), carting art supplies along dusty tracks, today MASK has beneficiaries in 15 countries across Africa and beyond.
