The Anne and Henry Zarrow School of Social Work recently hosted The International Song of Social Work, a continuing education event with special guests from the Maisha Project children's choir. The Maisha Project is a comprehensive community development program in rural Kisumu, Kenya that addresses poverty, hunger, disease and under-education in the area. Founded by Bea Williamson, Bea grew up in the Kenyan village but now lives in Oklahoma City and operates the non-profit program from there; hence the Oklahoma/Kenyan connection. For the first time, 24 children came to Oklahoma to sing and share their culture with schools and church groups across the metro. Our event was inspiring and fun as Bea shared about the program, the children performed and included all participants in dancing together, and Ann Riley presented on International Social Work efforts and our tie to the Maisha Project as an ACP practicum placement.
