An inspiring evening with the Adventist Vocal Ensemble and Ken Burton.
We cordially invite you to a Saturday evening of delightful entertainment. Enjoy great music, gain a chance to win some lovely prizes and feel that warm fuzzy feeling when you know you have been part of making a sustainable improvement for a fellow human being.
Rise Up for Africa, an inspiring evening where you will be treated to the wonderful voices of the Adventist Vocal Ensemble, led by the fabulous Ken Burton, performing a Benefit Concert for AIMSSEC – Empowering Disadvantaged African Children to Rise Up from Poverty through Sustainable Education.
Adventist Vocal Ensemble music will be available for sale during the concert and Ken Burton will be signing copies of CDs during the intermission and after the concert.
The African Institute for Mathematical Sciences Schools Enrichment Programme (AIMSSEC) founded in 2003, is a not-for-profit organisation empowering teachers to make an important difference to the educational opportunities of many thousands of South African children, and also to train other teachers. Experts from universities across the world work as unpaid volunteers, with the African staff, to give professional development courses for mathematics teachers, subject advisers and field trainers working in disadvantaged rural and township communities, improving their subject knowledge and teaching skills and providing resources. AIMSSEC’s work extends to other African countries and continues to grow and expand in the interest of sustainable improvement of education in Africa.
Rise Up for Africa will raise funds for bursaries for some of the many hundreds of teachers in disadvantaged communities that are keen to attend the courses, yet have no funding to do so. We have raised enough funds for 7 teachers to attend the courses so far and our objective is that the Rise Up for Africa Benefit Concert will enable another 20 teachers to attend by raising £10,000.
Ken and the Adventist Vocal Ensemble perform for the BBC periodically and were chosen by Reverend Rose Hudson-Wilkin as one of her Desert Island Discs.
Reverend Rose has kindly agreed to host the benefit concert at All Saints Haggerston Church, London and we are delighted that she will be attending the concert in person. Reverend Rose is Speaker’s chaplain to the House of Commons, priest vicar at Westminster Abbey and chaplain to the Queen.
