The Ugandan Orphans Choir, a ministry of Childcare Worldwide, will present a concert in Ramona on March 5.
Hosted by Spirit of Joy Lutheran Church, the 10 Ugandan children will present their songs and dances in the church, 1735 Main St., at 7 p.m.
All 10 children have been given hope through Childcare Worldwide’s Sponsorship Program and are spreading that hope to audiences across the United States, states an announcement of their performance in Ramona.
The choir has performed nationwide at churches, schools, and Disneyland, on King 5 Television’s “New Day Northwest” and the steps of the White House, and at Qwest Field, home of the Seattle Seahawks.
These children delight audiences with traditional African songs and dances, states the announcement.
“All of you have amazing talents, beautiful voices and some serious dance skills,” said Megan DiRienzo, curator of education at the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts. “A performance like yours was a once in a lifetime opportunity. We fully support you on your mission to end child poverty.”
Through child sponsorship, Childcare Worldwide provides children in need with an education that will prepare them for future employment and break the cycle of poverty in their lives.
Those attending the concert at Spirit of Joy Lutheran will enjoy a unique experience of traditional African song and dance as well as help children in need, say event organizers.
