On Monday, March 20, at 8 pm, the musical production “Let’s Sing for Young People in Malawi” will take place at the Théâtre des Variétés. Janine Pezzuoli-Grinda, particularly appreciative of the approach of young pupils of the Second International Option class at the Lycée Albert I and their professor Marie-Claude Riley, has brought together 25 singers from the Monegasque association “Si On Chantait” to hold a musical show.

This will raise funds for a non-governmental organisation working for children’s rights in Malawi, one of the poorest countries in Africa.

“Thinking Future-Keeping Girls in School” is an educational programme led by the African Network for Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect to enable young girls, and soon young people, not to leave school to marry prematurely.

The initiative is part of the PEACEJAM program, organised by the Directorate of National Education, Youth and Sports. On this occasion, high school students are invited to come together around noble causes and projects of a humanitarian character. Through this programme, students also have a tremendous opportunity to participate each year in an exchange with a Nobel Peace Prize laureate.

Tickets (€10 or €7 for students) will be on sale before the show or now from pupils, as well as Mrs Pezzuoli-Grinda at 06 07 93 51 62.
