Charity Event in Aid of Palestinians in Gaza: A Note for a Smile, Nov. 27 2014 @ Lord Erroll – Runda
The six-week conflict this summer left more than 1,870 dead and thousands injured, homeless, and traumatized. The conflict had a particularly devastating toll on Gaza’s youngest and most vulnerable. Many of the affected children have suffered serious injuries that cannot be treated in Gaza due to limited medical capacity caused by the ongoing blockades, and others suffer from severe traumatic disorders. They need our solidarity and support.
A group of us working in various humanitarian and development capacities in Nairobi have decided to organize a charity event to encourage the community to contribute to the work of Palestinian health institutions to restore dignity and hope to the Palestinians in Gaza.
All funds raised during the evening will go towards supporting the activities of Makassed Hospital in Jerusalem, as well as to the Gaza Mental Health Community Center.
During the event we will hold a silent art auction showcasing a number of world-class artists from the contemporary East African art scene, who have kindly contributed their work to raising funds for this cause. The impressive line-up of artists includes Fitsum Behre Woldelibanos, Eltayeb Dawelbait, Michael Soi, Anthony Okello, Paul Onditi, Shabu Mwangi, John Silver, Justus Kyalo, Dennis Muraguri, Yassir Ali Mohammed, Mariantonietta Peru and Kamal Shah.
There will be music throughout the night with live sets from some of the best musicians in Nairobi who have accepted to perform for the cause, including Idd Aziz, Teto, Jahm, Afro Simba and Mutinda.
Designers’ fair (featuring Otenge, Chilly Mango, Madafu Moxie); a raffle with a chance to win exciting prizes; food and drinks (cash-bar), and more surprises await you…
Please note that your ticket number will be your registration number for the art auction.
Bids will be open from 17:00 to 21:00!
Date: 27 November 2014
Venue: Lord Erroll, Runda
Time: at 17:00
General Admission: KES 2000

Musical Performance: by Children of KAG, Spurgeons & Valley View Academy, Nov. 11 2014 @ Spurgeons School – Kibera
ANNO’S AFRICA & ONE FINE DAY would like to invite you to a musical performance by the children from KAG Academy, Spurgeons Academy and Valley View Academy on Tuesday, 11th November at 12 noon at Spurgeons school in Kibera.
The children will be demonstrating the skills that they have acquired during the Anno’s Africa intensive workshops and the One Fine Day weekly arts clubs.
ANNOS’S AFRICA & ONE FINE DAY
ANNO’S AFRICA, was founded by Bee Gilbert and Andrew Birkin, in memory of their son, Anno, in 2006. The purpose of the UK registered charity is to give children in the poorest slums in Kenya, the chance to discover their as yet unexplored artistic potential and the opportunity to lead imaginative and self-determined lives.
Anno’s Africa, works in partnership with ONE FINE DAY e.V., an NGO founded by Marie Steinmann-Tykwer and Tom Tykwer in Berlin in 2008. These two charities, have combined forces in a programme which offers intensive creative workshops for children and young people living in the Nairobi slums of Kibera and Mathare.
More then 700 participants are free to choose from various arts disciplines, according to their preferences: traditional and contemporary dance, ballet, drama, creative writing/storytelling, music, circus skills, and visual arts. European mentors teach side by side with Kenyan artists and performers, who then continue the lessons in once weekly arts clubs, for the rest of the year.
Continuity is at the heart of the philosophy and commitment from ONE FINE DAY e.V. and ANNO’S AFRICA. With regard to these weekly art clubs, as the firm belief is that young artistic talents should evolve constantly. And these regularly scheduled classes give the children, who live such difficult and challenging lives, an exciting bright spot once a week. Currently 24 such creative weekend clubs are taking place in all disciplines through out the year.
The positive results are unequivocal and the children are all making significant progress not only in the arts but in their academic achievements as well. And all of these talented kids are finding not only self-confidence but also great joy in their lives through their new found artistic skills and the development of their imaginations.
Organized by toto afrika & pwani cycling club
