Watoto troupe dance into town
TOURING Australia and visiting Childers for one night only, the Watoto singing and dancing troupe from South Africa has received great reviews.
Watoto is a holistic child care ministry birthed out of a local church in Kampala, Uganda.
It was initiated as a response to the growing number of orphans and vulnerable children in Uganda.
The entertaining troupe is made up of orphan children – many becoming orphans as a result of the HIV/AIDS epidemic.
The widespread devastation has resulted in thousands of children becoming orphaned and living on the streets.
The talented artists are looking to raise awareness and get more support.
Watoto is restoring hope and dignity to vulnerable women and war-affected children by providing quality education, marketable vocational skills, trauma rehabilitation, life skills training and discipleship.
You can Sponsor a Life Today, and make a difference in the life of a child or mother through the gift of sponsorship.

The ‘Oh, what love’ Tour will be in Childers May 19, at the Childers Cultural Centre, from 7pm.
