Sol Doc hosted a benefit for the Manyatta Youth Resource Center in his home town to help raise money in purchasing a performance system which will aid the MYRC in hosting their own events in Africa.
The MYRC, with help from Equip Manyatta, recently built a recording studio that is being used to affordably produce music for youth living in the slums of Kisumu. The MYRC then helps these musicians sell their recorded music on CDs and also perform live shows.
The mission of the MYRC is to increase opportunities for youth living in the slums of Manyatta, Kisumu to participate in sporting activities and the performing arts. While the MYRC’s mission statement is simple, the objectives it hopes to accomplish through this mission are much more complicated.
