Rotary Club Hurlingham Nairobi held a kids' Art Day on Saturday at Karen Camp. The event attracted 18 children, ranging from 4 to 17 years under the mentorship of rising star Paskaline Jebet, who is an artist, model and Rotaractor.

Kids were allowed to express their artistic talents that left most parents amazed by the results. They also had a lot of fun and are already looking forward to the next event. 

Speaking during the event, Jebet acknowledged parents for giving support to their children as they discover their full potential in the art industry. “Art is a job like any other and I'm able to live my dream lifestyle through this gift of my hands,” she said.

Rotary is a global network of 1.2 million neighbours, friends, leaders and like-minded problem-solvers who aim to create positive and lasting change in their communities and themselves.
