Sarakasi Trust is East Africa's largest performing arts organization. It assists hundreds of acrobats, dancers and musicians in developing their skills. They are not just a platform for artists to improve their professional techniques but also serve as a place for social development. They have existed since 2001 and with the help of their donors continue to achieve their objectives. They stage a free concert, dubbed Sawa Sawa Festival, every year for Kenyans which provides entertainment and allows local performers to exhibit their immense talent.

Sarakasi Trust is a household name in Kenya associated with international exchange programs. They are dedicated to setting standards in the entertainment business by providing knowledge to artists on legal issues.
