Ugandan Kids Spread Hope for Children in Poverty
CHOIR OF TEN CHILDREN PERFORM TRADITIONAL UGANDAN SONGS AND DANCES WHILE RAISING AWARENESS ON THE POWER OF CHILD SPONSORSHIP

Sauk Rapids, MN – The Ugandan Kids Choir, a group of ten talented Ugandan children, has announced that they will be performing at Living Waters Lutheran Church, Sauk Rapids on Sunday, July 9th at 6:30 pm.
All ten children have been given hope through Childcare Worldwide’s Sponsorship Program and now they are here to spread that hope to audiences all across the United States. The choir has performed nationwide at churches, schools, at Disneyland, on King 5 Television’s “New Day Northwest,” at Qwest Field, home of the Seattle Seahawks.
These children delight audiences with traditional African songs and dances. Megan DiRienzo, Curator of Education at the San Angelo Museum of Fine arts says, “All of you have amazing talents, beautiful voices and some serious dance skills! A performance like yours was a once in a lifetime opportunity. We fully support you on your mission to end child poverty!”
The Ugandan Kids Choir is a ministry of Childcare Worldwide, which has been dedicated to empowering children in the developing world since 1981. Through child sponsorship, Childcare Worldwide brings hope to children in need by providing them with an education that will set them up for future employment and break the cycle of poverty in their lives.
By coming to this event, you will enjoy traditional African song and dance, as well as help children in need all around the world. So don’t miss this unique and authentic performance by the children of the Ugandan Kids Choir.
