New York, NY (June 18, 2013). Internationally acclaimed Dancehall artist Konshens, continues to raise the bar on his education initiative. Konshens, a staunch advocate for education and higher learning, has teamed up with a program called, C.I.P ( Career Imagination Program) & is spearheading a book drive, to help support and provide students at Kololo Senior Secondary School with the tools they need, to further their education.
C.I.P, helps to bridge the gap between education and the employment structure, in Africa. This organization provides mentoring programs and teaches young people new skills such as making jewelry, furniture, photography and much more. As a result of completing this program students have a better chance at earning a living after graduating.
“Its always good to help out kids in any way possible and books are very important in life not just in school. Knowledge is power and the ability to read is very important. I make a living off words so I know what I’m talking about” says Konshens.
As Konshens continues to grow as an artist and a humanitarian, so does his fan base worldwide. It is quite clear that Konshens intends to leave an indelible mark on the face and direction of what it means to be a true artist, by taking initiative to give back to society, in the best ways possible.
