African choir 

to perform July 23

Cultures will unite when the Daraja Children’s Choir of Africa performs at 6:30 p.m. July 23 at the First Baptist Church, 210 W. Washington St., Quincy, 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, serve as a bridge to connect the people of Africa and America. This is a life-changing opportunity for these children to learn and experience American culture, as many of them have never experienced life outside of Uganda. At the same time, Americans have the opportunity to step into the lives of these Ugandan children by hearing their testimonies and experiencing traditional African song and dance. 

The Daraja Children’s Choir of Africa is embarking on two U.S. tours this year, which include a stop in Quincy. 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.
