Most of the Okari students have been orphaned by AIDS. In December 2010, Grimis and AYS released an EP called 'Grimis Presents: the Okari Sessions' which has thus far raised more than $750 for the Okari Foundation.In April 2011 the band is touring the east coast, releasing a two-disc album featuring the Okari School students and screening a documentary about their trip. Proceeds from the record go to the Okari Foundation with the hopes of building classrooms and eventually a high school in Kisii for the students.www.myspace.com/grimissoundswww.andoveryouthservices.comwww.educating-aids-orphans-in-africa.org
