As of Friday, April 24, 2015
The Ugandan Kids Choir will be performing in Sunnyside on Sunday, May 3, at 5:30 p.m. at the Sunnyside Christian Reformed Church (700 N. 16th St.).
The 10 children who make up the choir were helped out of poverty through Childcare Worldwide’s Sponsorship Program, and now are performing traditional Ugandan songs and dances in a tour 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, and on the steps of the White House.
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.
Admission to the concert is free, but Childcare Worldwide will be asking for a free-will offering to help support their services to children.
