Zfin Malta

The Melita Foundation supports ŻfinMalta’s ĊaqLaq Project, fostering creativity and education. ĊaqLaq offers dance intensives in schools, empowering students and aligning with ŻfinMalta’s commitment. This partnership nurtures young minds, encouraging personal growth and a love for learning in classrooms across Malta and Gozo during the 2023/2024 scholastic year.

The Melita Foundation recognises that the results can be a gane changer when a company champions the fusion of art, education, and community. ŻfinMalta, the National Dance Company, is set to achieve just that with its new ĊaqLaq Project.

Founded in 2014, ŻfinMalta has emerged as a dynamic force in the contemporary art scene, fostering creativity and artistic growth. The ĊaqLaq project exemplifies the organisation’s commitment to education and outreach. Designed to provide creative movement residencies in schools, ĊaqLaq offers a unique opportunity for secondary students to engage with dance, ignite their imagination, and discover their creative potential.

The Melita Foundation support amplifies the impact of the ĊaqLaq project, which aims to offer week-long dance intensives to selected schools, benefitting students who may otherwise not have such access. Through immersive sessions led by ŻfinMalta company dancers, participants will embark on a journey of self-discovery, personal expression, and creativity.

ŻfinMalta’s dedication to inclusivity and creativity resonates with the Melita Foundation’s commitment to fostering positive change in the community. By investing in ĊaqLaq, The Melita Foundation is supporting the arts and empowering young minds, encouraging personal growth, and nurturing a love for learning.

As the project unfolds during the scholastic year 2023/2024, The Melita Foundation’s partnership with ŻfinMalta will bring dance, inspiration, and empowerment to classrooms, leaving an impact on the lives of young learners across Malta and Gozo.

Working together for a better future

Since our launch in 2020, The Melita Foundation has supported dozens of projects run by many diverse organisations. Project beneficiaries range from the very young to the very young-at-heart, from the the very local – such as supporting STEM skills development for school children in the Three Cities – to projects which will have an impact beyond our borders: supporting extensive tree planting; developing skills in maritime law and conservation; preserving parts of our heritage entwined with our diaspora.
