‘Poets with a difference’ (Their Page, Their Twitter) brings together both poetry lovers and performers around Nairobi. The group seeks to use poetry as a medium to create a difference in whichever way they can in the society.
Their first project involves working with Children with Cerebral Palsy. The first phase of the project included spending time with these kids in order to get the magnitude of work cut out for ourselves as well as to learn more about the condition so as to help in raising awareness.
The second phase of the project is a poetry fundraising event on 04 November from 7.00 PM to 10.00 PM at Secrets Lounge, View Park Towers for the Cerebral Palsy patients where all the proceeds go to Cerebral Palsy Society of Kenya (CPSK). This fundraising is different because it does not only raise money but also spreads awareness about the condition and the prevention. The event targets students and working persons
Featured arts will include Live bands, stand up comedy and poetry from Wanjeri ‘mawazo mengi’ Gakuru, Dann NumberEight Mwangi, Kennet B, Checkmate Mido, Adelle, Martin Githinji, Wamathai, Wanjiku Mwaurah, KUTT and many more.
Charges: kshs. 400 ( ALL PROCEEDS GO TO THE CEREBRAL PALSY SOCIETY OF KENYA)
Your attendance will put a smile on a kid’s face 🙂
