Angelique Kidjo Collaborates with Peter Buffett to Support Girls in Africa
Emmy-award winning musician and philanthropist Peter Buffett has teamed up with UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador and Grammy award-winning musician Angelique Kidjo to release “A Song For Everyone” . This uplifting and vibrant song, with lyrics in both English and Yoruba, speaks to the power of educating girls and the effect it can have on communities, countries and the world.
100% of proceeds from the song will benefit the Batonga Foundation, an organization founded by Angelique to advance education for girls in Africa.
Every cent helps: 2 downloads buys a girl a math set; 3 downloads buys a girl lunch during the school day; 5 downloads buys a girl a textbook; 10 downloads buys a girl a school bag or uniform; and 1,000 downloads pays school fees for an entire classroom of 45 girls to go to school for a year!
The Batonga Foundation gives girls a secondary school and higher education so they can take leadership roles in Africa. They are doing this by granting scholarships, building secondary schools, increasing enrollment, improving teaching standards, providing school supplies, supporting mentor programs, exploring alternative education models, and advocating for community awareness of the value of education for girls by addressing gender prejudice.
