The Like Me’s – first ChildSafe rock band in the world!
‘Ladies and Gentlemen, may we present the world’s first ChildSafe rock band… all the way from Northern California, its…
Laura & the Like Me’s!’
No, not some elaborate joke, but the honest-to-goodness truth. Laura Mam and her three bandmates, Loren Alonzo, Helena Hong and Monique Coquilla, who are currently on tour in Cambodia, took time out from their hectic schedule to not only visit the FI office and the Mith Samlanh center in Phnom Penh, but to undertake training from our ChildSafe team.
The hotly-tipped band are the first rock group to have completed this training, and have very graciously agreed to be global ChildSafe Ambassadors, spreading the word on ChildSafe and the work of Friends-International wherever their travels take them. The all-female group are definitely musicians with a mission, ‘Healing through Expression, Interpreting Adversity, Celebrating Adventure’ being the tagline on their website. We’ll keep you up to date with how this exciting collaboration evolves in the coming weeks, but for the moment you can read (and hear) more about the Like Me’s on their website, http://thelikemes.com/
