Watoto Children’s Choir

 

Watoto Children’s Choir: This choir is coming to Sevenoaks February 5 at The Ship Theatre Walthamstow Hall, 7:30pm. They have travelled internationally since 1994 as advocates for the estimated 50 million children in Africa, orphaned as a result of HIV/AIDS, war, poverty and disease.  Watoto choirs act as ambassadors to raise awareness about the plight of the orphaned and vulnerable children of Africa. Issues such as poverty, HIV/AIDS, the effects of war and the child soldier crisis in Northern Ugandan are highlighted. Each of the children in the choir has suffered the loss of their parents either through war or disease. The experience gives the children exposure to other cultures broadening their worldview giving confidence and boldness and helps them rise up out of their own situations of sadness and despair. Tickets are free and it’s a fantastic thing to invite a non Christian friend to. You won’t be disappointed.
