Oklahoma City – Maisha Project is pleased to announce Light Future Choir will be back in Oklahoma to raise awareness and say thank you to Oklahomans who make a difference in their village in Kenya.
Oklahoma City based non-profit Maisha Project is at their ten year mark and is impacting lives at home and abroad to bring lasting transformation. Light the Future Choir tours as ambassadors of this change; to sing, raise awareness and participate in cross cultural activities.
While in Oklahoma, the choir will visit many schools, churches and businesses with their cultural performance. They’ll also participate in giving back projects with Make Promises Happen.
The trip culminates at A Night for Africa, a free performance for the public on Saturday, December 2nd from 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm at the Conference Center of the Oklahoma City Archdiocese, 7501 NW Expressway, Oklahoma City, OK 73132. The choir’s high energy performance in English and Swahili will have you up on your feet dancing. A group of talented young Oklahoma City dancers from Dove Dance will also perform. Guests may purchase a Kenyan meal for $10. In addition, a silent auction, an Out of Africa Market and a giveaway for a once in a lifetime trip for 2 to Kenya will occur that night. Free registration, meal tickets and details are available at http://www.nightforafrica.com.
The choir’s tour positions them to become leaders in the Maisha community and inspires those of us in Oklahoma to do the same. The children will return home to Kenya ready to make a difference.
Organization Name: Maisha Project
About Maisha: It started with a girl who received a sponsorship for education at the age of 9 in a small village in Kenya. That girl is Beatrice Williamson, who founded Maisha so others might have the same opportunity for education and a “hand up.” Beatrice says “Through Maisha’s projects, I’m determined to break the vicious cycle of poverty to enhance the quality of life for every child we serve and empower them to transform their community. I want to see sustainable change that impacts future generations.”
Oklahoma City based non-profit Maisha Project’s mission is to transform lives and empower communities by providing lasting solutions to address poverty, hunger, disease and under-education.
