We are a group of teenagers that followed one girl's dream all the way to Kenya
to meet and to inspire a young orphan she sponsored. She wanted to bring the joy of theatre to children who might never get the opportunity to experience it. She asked a few of her friends to help her take a theatre camp to that orphanage in Africa.
Our first trip was an amazing success. The team conducted a week-long theatre camp and incorporated the children at the Foundation Stone Ministry Orphanage into a play that helped raise enough money from the surrounding Bondo community to get running water to the orphanage. The group traveled to two additional village schools, teaching those students theatre games and more. Over those two days at the schools, the sessions included over 1200 students!
In July of 2014 another team of students will be making a second journey to Africa to bring more theatre to the children living in the Foundation Stone Ministry Orphanage. This time we hope to again raise money within the Bondo community to help fund a school at the orphanage.
Funds needed for travel, lodging, materials and necessities for group going to orphanage in Bondo, Kenya. This student team will share the experience of Theatre with the children, by conducting a theatre camp at the orphanage and theatre workshops at local village schools. At the end of the theatre camp at the orphanage T.O.M team and the children will come together to perform for the local community to help raise the funds locally to complete construction of a school for these children and the surrounding neighborhood.
