Send Orphaned Teens from Kenya to High School

Apr 25, 2011

Fun on the Ground and in the AIr

Teens at the Good Samaritan Children's Home are bringing the performing arts to the Mathare Slum.  Using African dance, theatre art and aerobic activities, the teens entertain school audiences and children gathered in the streets.  The shows provide funds for the home, challenging and wholesome activities for the orphans, and fun for the community.  GSCH volunteer, Paul Mwaura plans to document their work with the new camera Fabulous African Fabrics has purchased.  Soon these pictures will be found in a report to you on Global Giving.  Paul is going to make CDs of the children's project available for sale in Kenya, and we hope in the US.

There is a long history of performance at the Good Samaritan Children's Home, as the founder of FAF first met the orphans at an international youth theatre conference in Kissumu, Kenya in 1998.  The chance meeting lead to the the development of this NGO.
