20th August 2019 will remain a special day for the children, parents and St. John community because a special visitor – The First Lady of Kenya, H.E Margaret Kenyatta and Amb AminaMohamed #MinistryofSportsandCulture visited Ghetto Classics in Korogocho to show case that #MusicMakesADifference and also that good things can come to Korogocho.
While at St. John’s she saw the St. John’s Library that is used by many of the children in the community, planted a tree in the Ghetto Classics garden, listened to music from the strings, woodwinds, choir and recorder classes, then watched the newest Ghetto Classics programme – the GC Dance group and closed the afternoon with a concert by the Orchestra.
In the photo above, The First Lady was presented with a guitar that was made out of recycled materials that are found in the dumpsite. To see more photos from her visit click HERE
We know this won’t be the last time she visits us and look forward to hosting her again.
