The concert is a fundraising event and choir members are orphans and other vulnerable children, many of them have suffered the loss of parents and live in a Ugandan village.
Accompanied by a team of adults, the choir presents Watoto’s vision and mission by sharing personal stories, music and dance.
While on the road, the children act as advocates for the millions of other African youngsters who have experienced similar traumas as them.
