Teen uses music to raise funds for children’s cancer treatment

14 November 2019

Tahir Butt is a Grade 11 student at Aga Khan Academy in Nairobi. As part of his curriculum mandated one-year school project, he is required to develop and execute a project of social impact. After losing his aunt to cancer two years earlier, a project around cancer treatment was an obvious choice. The challenge was figuring out a creative way to raise funds within the deadlines of the project. Eventually, after months of planning, Tahir held the concert earlier this month. He has since raised over Sh100,000 and plans to surpass his target before the project deadline.
