Rwandan Children in a Music for Life Program

The African Children’s Choir™ currently provides sponsorship for over 20 Rwandan Choir children, now working on their secondary and post-secondary schooling.

The African Children’s Choir™ has also forged a special relationship with the Gisimba Memorial Center, an orphanage in Rwanda’s capital city of Kigali. Since the 1994 genocide the African Children’s Choir™ has also helped support children and staff with counseling for post-traumatic stress disorder, provided food and supply shipments, and funded a number of community development projects. The Choir also assists with the Center’s operating costs.

Music for Life volunteers from around the world conduct enrichment camps for the children at the orphanage and in the surrounding communities. These camps are a time for the children to forget their circumstances and just have fun.
