The Ann Richards School mission statement – The Ann Richards School for Young Women Leaders dedicates itself to prepare young women to attend and graduate from college, commit to a healthy and well-balanced lifestyle, lead with courage and compassion, and solve problems creatively and ethically in support of our global community – includes supporting our global community.
The Stars from the Ann Richards School were treated to a special opportunity in support of their global community through a performance from the African Children’s Choir as part of their American tour, thanks to the Tejemos Foundation – Lynne Dobson and Greg Wooldridge.
The African Children’s Choir is composed of African children, aged 9 to 11 years old. The Choir is a program of a larger international organization called Music for Life, which provides thousands of impoverished children throughout Africa with the education, discipleship and leadership skills needed to rise above their conditions so they can bring positive, lasting change to their families, communities and countries.
The African Children’s Choir from this group featured students from Uganda who shared with our Stars about their community, what they wanted to be when they grow up, favorite class in school, favorite food, and what their daily life looks like.
After their amazing performance, our Stars toured our distinguished guests around the school and had lunch together. Highlights included the library slide, MakerSpace, art studio, and time outside playing fútbol, or soccer.
