Kenya: Holy Dave Raises Sh300,000 for Thika School

Gospel singer Holy Dave helped raise Sh300,000 for the Thika School for the Blind with the help of students from Braeside School.

"The students have contributed a generous amount of money that will go a long way in purchasing learning materials for Thika School for the Blind," he said. "As a thank you, I will host a charity event at Braeside School on Friday themed Unity in diversity, break a leg, educate a child."

The event is organised through his foundation, David Muthengi Foundation, whose vision is to eradicate poverty and enhance personal and economic empowerment through education.

The Ni Msoh star uses his influence to support college education for needy enterprising youth, empowering them to start and run businesses that will create employment for others.

The foundation is currently supporting a few college students and is beginning to partner with schools and other organisations in various education and charity-related projects.

The Braeside event is the first in this series and will feature performances by Kelele Takatifu, Jims n Dims dance group, and Ken the DJ.
