Event description
Tuimbe! (Let’s Sing!) A Concert to Benefit Mtree Sing with Hope 2019 Music Video Screening + Featuring New York’s Rising Classical Musicians

About this Event

You are invited to an evening of beautiful music and fundraising for Mtree's educational programs for children and youth from marginalized communities in Kenya. The best young classical musicians in New York area have generously donated their talent and time for this concert. The music video made by Mtree's music program participants in 2019, using the lyrics, rhythms, and melodies they created on their own, will have its world premiere release at the concert.

Mtree is a non-profit organization based in New York with a regional affiliate, Mtree Africa, as a registered non-profit entity in Kenya. Our mission is to create "Artful Change", a transformation of marginalized communities in developing countries through art and design. Mtree chose art education as the most approachable means of achieving this mission, which has since expanded to the level of community and international development. Mtree provides four primary programs specifically for the children and youth in underserved communities in Kenya: 1) Brush with Hope, 2) Fashion for All, 3) Sing with Hope, and 4) Dance with Hope. In addition to the art, fashion, music, and dance programs for the children and youth, Mtree also runs the following programs with the community partners: 1) Fit in Community, 2) Global Citizenship Education Program, 3) Tech beyond Tech, and 4) Community Research.
