Yesterday, in the Garden Lobby of the Scottish Parliament, we were all treated to the most fantastic display of young Kenyan singers. I tell you, they were marvellous examplars of joy, happiness and fulfilment. I think we were all especially captivated by one little girl in the front row!

These children were a complete joy. Their mentors are a charity set up by a couple in Livingston. Have a look at www.educatethekids.com to find out more and see how you can sponsor a child to give him or her a better future.
