Teens from Scotia Suzuki School start plans to travel to Kenya for service work at the Lovely Ones School
Introducing to you our amazing group of teens, representing the Scotia Suzuki School of Music, and their chaperones going July 2020 to the Lovely Ones School in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya. They will be planning service projects in the New Year to renovate the school children’s kitchen, library, playground area and bring them new much needed current text books. Some of the students involved in the Chicken project last year are pen pals with students from the Nairobi school. We encourage you to all participate in some way in 2020! There will be both small and big ways that you can help! This group will reveal their projects over time – so watch for them!
