Birthday bash for PA-MOJA program

Langley Fine Arts is celebrating the 10th year of their PA-MOJA program with a fundraising birthday bash

Langley Fine Arts is celebrating the 10th year of their PA-MOJA program with a fundraising birthday bash, and is inviting the public to attend.

On Friday, March 4 at 7 p.m. join the school and alumni band Derrival in a night of music, presentations and student performances.

Cost is a minimum $10 donation for students and $15 for all others.

Formerly known as Project Kenya Sister Schools, the program helps Kenyan children attend school through donations and sister school partnerships. LFAS works with Ol Pejeta Conservancy school, in the Laikipia region of Kenya.

PA-MOJA, a Swahili word for together, began with a small group at LFAS, and now works with schools across North America. Last year they raised $45,000, which went towards bursaries for students to attend high school, uniforms, desks, school supplies and a nursery school.

“It helps connect our school with one goal and create a cultural exchange so we can breakdown the stereotypes in Kenya,” said Jessica Schmidt, a Grade 11 student at LFAS.

“(The Kenyan students are) people like us who have dreams and inspirations that are just born into less fortunate situations.”
