RINHA Crew (Revolution, INnovation & HAbility crew) is a dance group based and operating in Goma since 2010. Together with the dancer Faraja Batumike F-Bat, in 2016 they established the RINHA Dance Projects, a non-profit association whose primary mission is to promote social development, reintegration, and innovation and to support street kids and young people from Goma and the Great Lakes sub-region through professional dance workshops, educational programs, such as the Vijana Up project, and hip-hop culture. A celebration of life, dance is a tool to bring unity, dialogue and peace.
Over the years the Rhina Crew has participated in many local and international events and competitions, individually or as a group, and since 2017 they have been organizing the Goma Dance Festival, the biggest international festival of urban, contemporary and traditional dance in the city.
This project is supported by an ANT Mobility Grant from Pro Helvetia Johannesburg financed by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC).
