Through the Capital Cares initiative, International artists Gramps and Peetah Morgan, J Boog and Anthony David are in Kenya handing over donations to UNICEF’s kitty for famine relief and exploring other opportunities to help those in need, personally.

The artists arrived at Capital FM studios early on Tuesday to share about their mission with non-profit organization Give Africa Hope and what their week-long trip in Kenya was all about, including a visit to the Alive & Kicking workshop.

A social enterprise that manufactures sports balls, Alive & Kicking is an organization that creates jobs for adults and promotes health and education through sport.  The team of international artists then proceeded to one of Alive & Kicking’s partners, Gatoto Primary School.

First time in Africa, J Boog of the hit-song “Let’s Do It Again,” was shocked when children at Gatoto Primary School in Nairobi’s poverty-stricken Mukuru Kwa Njenga Slum recognized him and were able to sing his song.

The entire team was extremely touched by how welcoming the students were and the teachers’ convictions to provide quality education to the community despite the school’s minimal supplies.  Following a showcase from Kenya’s best primary school choir, the students at Gatoto Primary School listened intently as Anthony David, Gramps and Peetah Morgan, and J Boog serenaded them.

The team then met with UNHCR Spokesperson Emmanuel Nyabera for the latest news on the famine and the situation at refugee camps in the region.

Anthony David, Gramps and Peetah Morgan, and J Boog wrapped up Day 1 of their trip to Kenya with impromptu performances at Capital Group’s cocktail hosted by InterContinental Nairobi as Capital said ‘Thank you’ to its clients in true Capital Style!

The team will spend the next few days in Kisumu, bringing their relief efforts to other parts of Kenya.

    I wish Kenyans would recognize such heroes who make changes in peoples lives rather than commend noisy politicians who care more of their stomax than about other peoples lives!
