About The Cause
Since the African Children’s Choir was founded in 1984, the choir children have become ambassadors for the beauty, dignity, and potential of African children everywhere. The Choir’s parent organization Music For Life was established to extend the Choir’s voice and reach by offering a variety of education, relief, and development programs across Africa.
Thanks to the generosity of the organization’s many donors and supporters over the years, Music For Life has supported more than 53,000 of Africa’s most vulnerable children through education, and reached more than 100,000 in Africa’s poorest communities.
