Groovin’ for Guinea: GKEF Gets By With A Little Help From Our Friends

Guinea Kids Education Fund would like to heartily express our thanks to Mandjou and Maya Kadakia of Mandjou Mara Djembefola who held a trio of fun events in Madison, Wisconsin to benefit GKEF in late October! Groovin’ for Guinea — A Benefit for the Guinea Kids Education Fund was comprised of 3 opportunities to give:

1. Maya Kadakia’s West African dance class
2. An African music show at the High Noon Saloon with music by Chafo, Limanya, Kikeh Mato, and Tani Diakite
3. A West African Dinner at the Slow Food University of Wisconsin kitchen, including a performance and Guinea style dance party led by Limanya Drum and Dance Ensemble!

All the proceeds from these events went to GKEF! Well, that deserves a trio of cheers! Hip Hip Hooray for Mandjou and Maya Kadakia and for Madison, Wisconsin! Thank you to everyone who organized and came out in support of children’s education in Guinea. Together we are making a difference.
