Watoto Children’s Choir – ‘Concert of Hope’

You are invited to a ‘Concert of Hope’ with the Watoto Children’s Choir on Sunday 26th November 2006 from 6.30pm until 8pm at Methodist Central Hall,. Westminster.

What is ‘Watoto’?  Well, it means ‘The Children’.  The Watoto Children’s Choir was founded in Uganda in 1994, and since then has been touring Europe, the USA, Canada, and Australia.  The choir spread a message of hope for Africa’s children.  The African drums resound and one by one, the children come dancing down the aisles in their brilliant Ugandan costumes with radiant smiles on their faces!  The children are among 1.7 million boys and girls in Uganda who lost one or both parents to AIDS or war.  Throughout Watoto’s Concert of Hope, you experience the energy, joy, and hope that these beautiful Ugandan children have found!

The mission of Watoto is to raise the next generation of Ugandan leaders by placing parentless children in families where the necessary love, care, spiritual discipleship, and physical needs are provided.  The goal is to equip these precious children with the essential moral values and life skills that will enable them to make a significant and lasting impact.  Through their performances, the W.C.C. is moving the hearts of people around the world as they share their stories of joy and hope.  Please do come and support them, and invite others too!  The event is free with an offering towards the work of the Watoto Child Care Ministries.  You will not need a ticket – just turn up.

    Hi Graham. Thanks for the message. This may be possible. You would need to ask the leaders of the Watoto Choir – email and mention that I have put you in touch. If they say ‘yes’, I would also be avialble to comment, as the host of the event. Tony Miles
