Watoto Children’s Choir

Banjo’s Bakery Cafe was lucky enough to meet the wonderful children and people of the Watoto Children’s Choir on their recent visit to Hobart, Tasmania in July 2016. Banjo’s Hobart provided them with a wholesome Breakfast to help keep up their strength during their tour.

Watoto Children’s Choirs have travelled extensively since 1994, sharing a message of hope for Africa’s orphans and widows. To date, the choir has toured six continents and performed to enthralled audiences in schools, retirement homes, churches, parliaments, state houses and royal palaces.

The Watoto Children’s Choir is a unique ‘reaching out’ tool. Reach people in your organisation, community or church. Address issues of global significance and fuel your missions or outreach program to care for the orphan and widow.

Each child in the Watoto Children’s Choir has suffered the loss of one or both parents and now lives in a Watoto village. The experience of travelling on a choir helps the children to develop confidence and boldness, as well as broadening their worldview.

Accompanied by a team of adults, the choir presents Watoto’s vision and mission by sharing personal stories, music and dance. While on the road, the children act as advocates for the millions of other African children who have experienced the same heartbreaking pain and suffering as them.

Follow the choir as it travels the world.
