Energetic, joyful, full of life's promise and true advocates for their Christian faith, perfectly sums up our experience of the Watota Children's Choir.

Recently hubby and I had the privilege of attending a Watoto Children's Choir event in Tanawha on the Sunshine Coast and to say we experienced an oxymoron of emotions ranging from awe to nostalgia, would not be an understatement. These orphaned children from Uganda truly lift the spirits of all who have the pleasure of attending one of their fundraising concerts.

Allow me the opportunity to give you an insight into the Watoto Children's Choir's background.

The Watoto Children's Choir is a group of eighteen vulnerable children from Uganda, each of whom has suffered the loss of one and in some instances both parents, either as a result of illness or abandonment. But, they have now been rescued. These children live in a Watoto village or a neighbouring community where they are supported by Watoto's Neighbourhood project. Watoto is a holistic child-care solution initiated to serve the dire needs for the people of Africa.



Since 1994 the Watoto Children's Choirs have toured the world annually, sharing the plight of the eighteen million African children currently orphaned by AIDS. The choirs have put on shows for presidents and royalty in the White House, Buckingham Palace and the United Nations. The very special Watoto Children's Choirs has also performed at the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Pageant in the United Kingdom and is featured on Chris Tomlin's album 'Hello Love'.

The Watoto Children's Choir is presently touring Australia with their current concert, Signs & Wonders. Signs & Wonders features songs that share the stories of the children and the hope they have, because of God's love.

Watoto Children's Choir, Signs and Wonders, Uganda, orphans, lost one or both parents, Watoto Village, Watoto's Neighbourhood project, holistic child-care, Queen's Diamond Jubilee Pageant, all performances are FREE, rescue, raise, rebuild, raising transformational leaders, child sponsorship, fundraising concerts, committed to celebrating Christ, caring for its community

Watoto need regular sponsors to enable them to rescue abandoned infants and to support the mothers, who care for the children


Watoto's mission of 'rescue, raise, rebuild' is raising transformational leaders who will impact positively on every sphere of society, reforming Uganda and serving as a model for the rest of Africa. If you decide to partner with Watoto through a sponsorship programme, you agree to make regular contributions that enable Watoto to rescue abandoned infants and to support the loving mothers, who care for these children.
