Children from Uganda and Kenya journey to inspire and share their culture with America,
Cultures will unite when the Daraja Children’s Choir of Africa performs at Cornerstone Baptist Church on Friday, December 2 at 7:00 pm 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 and Kenya, serve as a bridge to connect the people of Africa and America. This performance is a life-changing opportunity for these kids to learn and experience American culture, as many of them have never experienced life outside of Uganda and Kenya. At the same time, Americans have the opportunity to step into the lives of these Ugandan and Kenyan children by hearing their testimonies and experiencing traditional African song and dance.
”With our culture at times seeming so divided, having a group like Daraja come and help bridge our differences and united us with a message of hope is a breath of fresh air.”
The Daraja Children’s Choir of Africa is embarking on their U.S. tour this year, which includes a stop in Greensboro, NC. 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.
