Abaana New Life Choir
A children's choir brings a taste of Ugandan sunshine to Frimley
Friday 17 May, 7.00 pm
The Abaana New Life Choir is an amazing group of children from Uganda who light up the stage through song and dance. They are visiting Frimley Baptist Church on Friday 17 May to perform a range of worship and traditional African music and dances while telling us stories of life in Uganda. Their ages range from 8-13 and all come from a background of poverty - one of them is a former street child. The children are ambassadors for the many other children back in Africa who still need support.
The children are drawn from across 14 Ugandan Primary Schools built by the Irish charity, Abaana. Abaana means 'children' and the charity works on behalf of the millions of children in Africa who live in extreme poverty. Their aim is to give these children New Life through education.
Since its foundation over 20 years ago, the charity has built 14 primary schools, providing education for some 4,000 children. Abaana also provides sponsorship for some 1,700 children so they can go to school, and works with other Ugandan organisations to rescue children, often as young as six years old, who live rough on the streets. The children stay at Abaana's New Life Children's Homes where they can resume or start their formal education for the very first time. Where possible, Abaana seeks to see the children safely and happily reunited with their families.
Why not come and see the children, hear their stories, listen to their music and support Abaana in their work in Africa. It promises to be an amazing night.
