Wa­toto troupe dance into town

Isis Town and Country - - News -

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.

Visit www.wa­toto.com/ spon­sor­ship.

Mer­chan­dise such as Wa­toto Chil­dren’s Choir music, t-shirts and DVDs are avail­able in the Wa­toto store at www.wa­toto.com/ store.

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