Raising Leaders – Watoto Children’s Choir

by derrick

As a photographer, I always wanted to contribute back to the society for how the society have helped me to become who I am today.  The Watoto(Uganda) Children’s Choir is in Singapore recently and I am happy to be able to get up close and personal with this group of kids which are doing a world tour to raise fund for thier unfortunate peers back in Uganda. This choir is a group of ophan who have lost their parents to AIDS (HIV) and war. Each and every one of them have their own story and a faith of hope for a better tomorrow. I am happy that I can contibute my small effort in capturing honest photos of them to raise fund for this tour.

The Watoto Childrens Choir will be performing live at The Esplanade on 6 August 2010. Check out www.sistic.com.sg for more information. For more information of the Watoto project, you can check up www.watoto.com.
