Introducing The Maasai Whisper Project

As my regular readers will know, one of my inspirations and indeed an inspiration for BODO, is the charity Whisper World Orphanage Fund. Founded by a friend of mine, Veronika Cejpkova and Antonio Genco, Whisper has been caring for many orphaned children in Uganda by providing them food, shelter and an education. Whisper Maasai5This year, Whisper will be celebrating five years and to commemorate this, they’ve decided to launch the Maasai Whisper Project with a fundraising event at the Meininger Hotel in South Kensington. Back when Veronika and Antonio first returned from a trip to Africa and decided to launch the charity, one of their ideas for a fundraising event included a naked photoshoot featuring many of their female friends and acquaintances modelling just Maasai jewellery! whisper massai3They had planned to showcase this photoshoot during an elaborate fundraiser, but the time never seemed right and the idea sat waiting in the wings. Now they’ve decided that their five year anniversary is the perfect time to showcase this photoshoot as well as raising some essential funds for the charity!
The event will be a colourful affair, with dancing, singing and entertainment for the guests, who will also have the opportunity to buy unique and exquisite Maasai jewellery. I’ll definitely be going to show my support to their cause and if it sounds like something you’d be interested in, tickets are available for £20 online prior to the event or £25 on the door.
