~Children from Uganda journey to inspire and share their culture with America
Cultures will unite when the Daraja Children’s Choir of Africa performs at Christ Church, Easton at the Alive at Five service on September 21st and at Christ Church/Living Water, Kent Island on September 22nd at the 8am & 10am services to bring a message of joy and hope through African song and dance.
Daraja means “bridge” in Swahili, and the Choir, made up of 24 children from Uganda, serve as a bridge to connect the people of Africa and America. This is a life-changing opportunity for these children to learn and experience American culture, as many of them have never experienced life outside of Uganda. At the same time, Americans have the opportunity to step into the lives of these Ugandan children by hearing their testimonies and experiencing traditional African song and dance.
“We are so excited to be hosting Daraja Choir once again, since 2010 we have look forward to inviting them back into our homes, church and community. It is amazing to see God working through each and every child as they connect with many during their stay.” – Kim Willard Christ Church Youth/Family Minister
The Daraja Children’s Choir of Africa is embarking on two U.S. tours this year, which includes a stop in Stevensville, MD. In spite of dealing with unimaginable hardships, these children are overflowing with joy and love, which they are eager to share, as is evident in their performance.
The Daraja Children’s Choir of Africa is part of The 410 Bridge, a non-profit organization focusing on holistic community development in Uganda, Kenya, and Haiti. The 410 Bridge exists to connect people within the body of Christ to contribute to the self-developing capabilities of the people we serve.
