Robbie Schaefer – One Voice
Robbie Schaefer worked for a telecom company after college and was bored and miserable. His father asked “well what do you want to do?” His answer was he wanted to sing and follow his heart and go to Africa. He went to a school in Uganda where everybody was happy to see him but the grumpy security guard. He taught the children to sing “The Sound of Music” which they wanted to sing over and over; and Robbie noticed the security guard with a smile looking in the class room from outside the window. He created a non-profit “One Voice”. The kids sang to raise $’s to build a new school. The kids also painted pictures of hearts to raise $’s for 13 children to have heart surgery. Robbie later went to India on a similar project and taught the children to sing “Voi – Ya – Ya’ “We are following the path to your heart”.
