He has been doing this to raise awareness for the education of children refugees.

I believe education is important because evrybody needs to be educated. Education is a powerful tool, education gets rid of hatred, ignorance.. it's beautiful," he said.

Andre will be staying in Topeka until Monday, when he makes he way through Manhattan.
