In January 2018, Watoto, an NGO in Uganda, East Africa, brings you the Watoto Children’s Choir performing their brand new album, “We Will Go”. The 6-month tour, launching in the USA on the East Coast, presents the story of abandoned African children and vulnerable women, who’ve been empowered to rise above their circumstances, and answer the call to be part of the new Africa – ready to make a difference in the world.
Watoto Children’s Choirs have traveled extensively since 1994, sharing a message of hope for Africa’s most vulnerable children and women. On almost every day of the year, the choir is performing somewhere in the world. Hundreds of thousands of people get to meet some of Africa’s future leaders. People see their smiles and are embraced by their hugs. The children have the distinct privilege of telling people, “It’s possible to have joy, to laugh and to have hope, no matter what you’re going through.”
Like Africa, the production is vibrant and colorful, taking you on an emotional journey from utter despair to joyous celebration, as the children and women share their personal stories of triumph in story and song. Other than coming to Africa yourself, what better way to learn about all the good things happening in Uganda than through this stirring, musical experience. Proceeds made from the album will help Watoto provide vulnerable children and women with homes, education, medical care, and most of all the love of a family.
Watoto is a family made up of people from all over the world who are working together to ensure that the forgotten have a place to belong. In a time of civil war, we planted a local church in Kampala, Uganda to speak hope and life to the nation.
Since then, we’ve placed thousands of orphans in families, empowered thousands of vulnerable women to reach their communities, rescued babies and former child soldiers, and sent children’s choirs across six continents.
As we work alongside the most vulnerable in our society, our aim is to rescue individuals and raise each one as a leader in his or her sphere of life so that, in turn, they will rebuild the nation. In over 35 years, the challenges facing Africa have changed, but our vision remains the same. And, in all of this, Watoto is committed to celebrating Christ and caring for community.
We Will Go will be a great celebration of their identity in Christ and the confidence that comes from knowing God has a great plan and purpose for each one of their lives. As the children share their personal stories and present new worship music from Watoto Church in Uganda, we believe you will be inspired, and your heart lifted; reminded of the beauty of your own story and encouraged about the journey that lies ahead. Audiences will be given the opportunity to respond by partnering with Watoto to rescue vulnerable women and children in Africa, raise them up as leaders, so they can rebuild their nation. Child sponsorship will be available as well as African crafts, CD’s, t-shirts, etc. The more people you invite the more exposure the event will have! It’s important to us that your community hears the message of Jesus. To see a glimpse of We Will Go: Click Here
