Music For Life Outreach Program
Learn About Our Outreach Teams
Our Music for Life Outreach teams are made up of young adults who once traveled with the African Children’s Choir®.
Where We Work
In the slums of Africa, children live with the harsh realities of extreme poverty every day.
They often live with one parent who struggles constantly to find one meal a day and money for school fees. Their homes are small shacks nestled tightly together with no running water, electricity or sanitation services. There are high rates of crime, prostitution and pornography is widely available. In this environment, parents struggle to raise their children.
We are committed to breaking this cycle of poverty by providing mentorship and discipleship to children living in these areas through our outreach programs.
Our teams reach 550 new children each year.
Spanning 14 different African locations.
Our outreach teams meet children across Uganda, Kenya and Rwanda, teaching them about the love, grace, and hope of our Saviour, Jesus Christ. Their spirits rise and their faith takes hold as they see a glimpse of God’s love.
“The mentorship program is powerful because it continues to carry forward the vision of the African Children’s Choir. Now that we have been trained as bearers of hope – we have been given the opportunity to exercise it by also holding the hand of those that follow.”

“Becoming a mentor has enabled me to speak positively into the lives of my younger brothers and sisters. I’ve learnt that when you get an opportunity to speak into someone else’s life, give it your all, because that word of encouragement that you give, could be all someone needs to help turn their life around.”

University Graduate Leadership
Each week our university students go to one of our Music For Life Outreach Centres located in primary schools in some of the most deprived areas. They lead extra-curricular activities which these greatly under resourced and over-crowded schools can not hope to provide such as music, dance, life skills and bible. There is always games and something to eat too!
The college students understand the children’s struggles as they too come from similar backgrounds. They serve as role models as they mentor the children with lots of love and encouragement.
Children are able through this program to discover their talents which in turn develops confidence, improved communication skills and teamwork. The spill over effect is improved learning and concentration in the classroom which is often remarked on by the class teachers.
