Light in Senegal

<p> We know that light shines in the eyes of children - yet today there are 200,000 children living in the streets of Senegal. This drastically large number tells us enough is enough, we can not see more children on the streets. BLUES'UP wants to make their situation a priority! Have we accepted their condition, their despair? Artists have come together to sing and record "Light in Senegal", but the fight has only just begun.</p> <p> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="304" src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/56150313" width="540"></iframe></p> <p> "<strong>Light in Senegal</strong>" is a <strong>charity song</strong> written by Pierre Sibille to advocate and <strong>support organizations</strong> as :  <strong>EMPIRE DES ENFANTS</strong>, <strong>SPER center, </strong><strong>Dakar</strong><strong> SAMU SOCIAL, VILLAGE PILOTE, FUTUR AU PRESENT,  YAAKARU GUNUYI, </strong>who work to educate, support and to reunite street children with their families.</p> <p> <em>Actions in collaboration with <strong>G ROCK CONSULTING</strong></em>.</p> <p> "Light in Senegal" shows that music CAN change lives.
