Kenya: Anthony Faulkner Visits Children's Home in Kayole

American gospel singer Anthony Faulkner on Tuesday afternoon visited one of the children's homes he supports in Kayole.

The singer, who formed a foundation named after him to assist orphanages and start a scholarship for students a few months ago, spent the afternoon with children at By Grace Children's Home and gave them Christmas presents. The Faulkner Foundation is funded solely by the artiste. Faulkner is a graduate of the University of Houston with an accounting major.

"I'm glad to be here for the first time and meeting the children just made my day. I just hope that they will enjoy their holidays with the little gifts I brought for them," Faulkner said as he distributed food and some electronic appliances.

Faulkner has travelled all over the world singing and bringing awareness to dreaming big dreams, achieving goals, and living your dreams.

Coming from a large family and very difficult and challenging youth, Faulkner has taken the initiative to assist orphanages and start the Faulkner Foundation Scholarship for students attending school. He is scheduled to perform at Embassy Cinema this Sunday at 2pm. He will be backed by Eko Dyda, Ringtone and Uganda's Exodus.
