Thanks again to everyone for being so kind and generous... everyday i receive encouragement.. I am so grateful...I would like to share with you my latest news..
As my dear Grandma reminded me this morning....the blessings one gets when one does good is not to be expected from the receiver...When i decided to go forth with my Kickstarter Project.. i wanted to also be able to give back more than just the rewards for my backers..I have had the blessings and support of many of you in more ways .. and it is with this in mind that i have been working on an idea i had during my convoy trip to South Africa with an organization call White Ribbon Alliance...
on this trip i was one of 10 artist from UK and SA. who took this convoy from Joberg to Cape Town to raise awareness of maternity death.....My greatest joy of the trip was watching and seeing the children we met respond to our performance and even more so when we invited them to join in. Priceless.
I have been working diligently on being able to go back to Africa and continue the journey of sharing with the kids/youth the power of finding ones own voice and blessings .......
I love sharing and teaching dance to kids has been one of the most rewarding things i have done to date..I have made some enquiry about organization in Ghana that i could offer my services to for the 3 months i shall be in Ghana... and i am close to settling on a couple.. one an orphanage the other a home for street kids....... More news on this to come....
One other good news in the spirit of giving.. i have found an organization that has agreed to sponsor my trip by offering to send a whloe lot of books that they have collected.....
to give away.. as soon as i confirm the organization they will ship all the books to Ghana for me to deliver!.. how wikkid is this!.....
We know knowledge is power no matter where you are in the world.. My dream outside of the completing of my album is to find liked minded people who will help me to collect literature by Africans in and out side of Africa........... to give away!.. You will be amazed how difficult is it to find such books in Africa...
I thank you all again for pledging and spreading the word..
66days to go!..I know we can do this!...
