On September 22, 2016, Avalon Montessori School invited the Kenyan Boys Choir to entertain as part of the 'We Day' celebrations. We Day is a global event that focuses on empowering youth, encouraging them to make significant change in the world. This event, which took place at Fallingbrook Presbyterian Church, was made even more special when the boys presented the school Principal, Sherry VanderKooi with a birthday gift. Beautiful singing and words of empowerment - a great combination!
According Henry Wanjala, a founding member of the group "Our mission is to train young boys back home in Kenya to learn different life skills through music and just to have a positive impact in their society back home.
The students of Avalon have been involved with Free the Children since 2008 and have particated in We Schools in Action since 2010 and this has greatly shaped the socail conscience of our students. Visit www.freethechildren.com or www.weday.com for more information.
