Become part of the movement.
Join us and see how one group of children use song to
inspire change and end the poverty cycle.
The African Children’s Choir, which began in the 1980s with one man’s travels to Uganda, has sparked a movement to end the continent’s poverty cycle. The choir is composed of African children ages 7 to 10, many of who have lost one or both of their parents to war, famine or disease. The choir members represent all of Africa’s children and demonstrate the potential that each and every one of them holds. Through the program, thousands of children from various African countries are removed from their poverty-stricken homes and invited to travel the world, raising awareness and support for their brothers and sisters back home. Through song and dance, the choir gains support to fund education and youth development programs for children across Africa.
This choir is a symbol of hope and an example of the enormous impact one person can have. I would like to invite you to end the poverty cycle by donating to my campaign to support the African Children’s Choir.
The African Children’s Choir will be performing on Saturday, November 23, 2013 at 7 p.m. at Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School (4301 East-West Highway, Bethesda, Maryland 20816). This free performance is open to the public, but the choir does accept donations to support programs
