Nairobi Children’s Homes Music Festival

Nairobi Children’s Homes Music Festival
Written by Peter – HHFL volunteer

On Saturday 10th December, Teacher Isaiah and myself took a group of 40 children from HHFL to the Nairobi Children’s Hmies Music Festival which was held at Jamhuri Primary School grounds.

It was a festival bringing together kids from children’s homes and rescue centers from around Nairobi to compete in various disciplines and showcase their talents.

We were participating for the first time. We presented three verses (poems), one narrative, one song, two modern dances and a presentation using the recorders,  which the children have been learning to play during our extra curricular Christmas holiday program.

The panel of adjudicators were very impressed by some of the talents showcased by our kids and apart from attaining first runners up position overall, one of our kids, Denzel was noted for his exemplary talents in narration.

The judges were amazed that we were able to put up a spirited challenge despite this being our very first time participating. They were also quick to point out that they were expecting us to present some very stiff competition come next year.

We were awarded a certificate and the kids were given clothes and shoes as well as a sumptuous lunch.

It was a wonderful outing and we look forward to returning next year!
