Growing up as a little girl, mama always used to sing to me ‘Que Sera Sera’ – whatever will be will be. It quickly became one of my favourite songs and so, arriving at KAASO in 2009 with my guitar on my back, it was an obvious choice to sing with the children. They adored it and the school grounds would often be ringing with little voices singing their ‘que sera seras’.
When I listen to this song, it reminds me that while life is full of the unknown, of ups and downs, twists and turns, and forks in the road, somehow everything works out in the end. Whether or not we have rainbows day after day.
This video is a celebration of all those gorgeous little children at KAASO, those I have come to know and adore over the past five years.
You can’t help but smile when you see their faces, their happiness is contagious.
It recently occurred to me that many of you may not know how KAASO came to be. For those who have followed me since day one, it’s been over five years since I first shared this remarkable story. Others who have only recently joined the journey won’t know that KAASO began in 1999 when Dominic and Rose opened their home to twelve young orphans and a school was created.
Thanks to the incredibly talented Beau Outteridge who has pieced this together for me, I share with you a short film outlining the journey of KAASO from its inception through to today.
It moves me endlessly to think of all that has been achieved in that space of time – and all there is still to come.
Two past volunteers of KAASO have put together an amazing video which I encourage you to watch if you have a few spare minutes in your day. It is a great way to get a feel for the school, the children, Dominic and Rose and also introduces you to some of the hopeful boys who dream of moving into their new dormitory one day.
