Watoto Children’s Choir travels from Africa with an inspiring story of hope.
The Watoto Children’s Choir, a group of 18 vulnerable children from Uganda, are visiting GRLC as a part of its six month tour in Australia featuring their concert, Signs & Wonders.
The FREE concert features songs that share the stories of the children and the hope they have because of God’s love.
Since 1994, Watoto Children’s Choirs have traveled the world sharing the plight of Africa’s orphaned children. Each child in the choir has suffered the loss of one or both of their parents but they have now been rescued. They live in a Watoto village or a neighbouring community where they are supported by Watoto’s Neighborhood project. Watoto is a holistic child-care solution initiated to serve the dire needs of the people of Africa.
Ivan Masembe (13) is excited to be part of the Watoto Children’s Choir, touring Australia in 2018. Before he joined Watoto, his father had abandoned their family, leaving his unemployed mother without support.
Through the Watoto neighbourhood project, his mother was also equipped with practical skills to help support herself and her family. Ivan was also offered the opportunity to be educated at a Watoto school.
“Since joining Watoto they have taught me how to respect people, work with others, and help my mother.
While I’m on the road with the choir, I am going to share the story of the miracles that Jesus has done in my life, and I hope it will help people to know that, in Christ, there is nothing to fear” said Ivan.
