Wacheva Cultural Arts believes in the creative and educational development of youth and families by implementing Arts from around the world, and in particularly, African culture. The name "Wacheva" comes from the language of the Gouro people, an ethnic group in West Ivory Coast, West Africa. The word "Wacheva" means "Unity." This word is more than just our name, but a simple expression of our core belief in nurturing the youth and building community. Founder, Biboti Ouikahilo, a native from the Ivory Coast, West Africa, created Wacheva in 1994 while still living in the Ivory Coast. In 2003, Biboti brought Wacheva to Syracuse where he combined his dreams and visions with a Syracuse native, Jill Finochio. Today, Biboti and Jill have re-created Wacheva Cultural Arts (formerly known as JFOB Cultural Arts) in Central New York - uniting their different cultures from across the world for the success of the Arts.
