About the Ugandan Orphans Choir
The Ugandan Orphans Choir is a group of ten talented children ranging from 11 to 14 years of age. All ten children have been given hope through Childcare Worldwide’s sponsorship program, and now they devote their energy to helping other children to have access to sponsorship and education. This event is free and open to the public.
The choir has performed in churches and schools nationwide, as well as venues such as Disneyland, KING 5 Television’s “New Day Northwest,” and Qwest Field, home of the Seattle Seahawks.
The Ugandan Orphans Choir is a ministry of Childcare Worldwide which has been devoted to transforming the lives of children for over 30 years in nine developing countries. Childcare Worldwide seeks to make learning and the hope of future employment possible for every child they serve. The ultimate goal of sponsorship and education is to break the cycle of poverty in children’s lives.
