Teresa and I took the kids to see the Watoto Children’s Choir tonight … wow!
The choir is amazing – loud, happy, energetic, and infectiously enthusiastic. It’s made up of about 20 kids from the Watoto children’s home in Uganda, Africa, all from 8 to 11 years old.
They’re all orphans, having lost one or both of their parents to AIDs, violence, or other disease. The Watoto home takes them in (there are about 1300 kids there right now) and gives them a group home with a mother. It’s run by Christian groups based in Uganda, and their goal is to take care of 10,000 Ugandan orphans.
The choir is making a tour of Canada, and then Scotland. If you’re able, don’t miss them.
