The La Mennais Choir Moshi is an integral part of the La Mennais Vocational Training Centre in Moshi/ Tanzania (lamennaisvtc.org
It was in 2006, that the Brothers of Christian Instruction in collaboration with their German friends of HELFEN MACHT SCHULE e.V. built a school at the Brothers’ Centre in Moshi (Tanzania). The school provides skills to disadvantaged youth, especially primary school leavers who could not pursue secondary education and form four dropouts. It intends to equip these youth with the needed knowledge to start self-reliant careers in the field of their choice.
Additionally to their theoretical and practical timetable in the centre, the students are offered extra-curricular activities, e.g. choir, sports or agriculture, which encourage them to develop their individual talents. These choir sessions took place during the evening in one of their class rooms.
70% of the benefits of this LP sale will directly go to the La Mennais Vocational Training Centre and support the choir and futher students activities
