As we send this newsletter, we are both thrilled and excited about all of our new offerings, and devastated by the senseless violence that occurred in one of our placement sites, Nairobi, last weekend. All of our volunteers and the members of our partner organization in VOCAL are safe, but nearly 70 people lost their lives, and hundreds more were injured. Our thoughts go out to Kenya and we hope and believe that the performing arts will be central to healing and reconciliation efforts in the months and years to come. For an official statement on Nairobi’s current security situation from our site director George Ndiritu, please go here.
As always, I welcome you to e-mail me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions regarding our programs or the situation in Kenya. For a full list of locations where we offer programs, please see below.
