They have been graced with opportunities to perform for the U.K. Prime Minister and members of Parliament, at U.S. State Houses and for government officials, at the United Nations, for the Ugandan Embassy, Boston  and Brooklyn African Festivals, several Jazz festivals, the Newport Yachting Center and more. In October 2012, they performed for over 20 Heads of State at the Uganda Jubilee, a celebration of 50 years of independence.

Kampala Children’s Centre was the vision of Arnold Muwonge, who now serves as its director. Located outside of the city of Kampala, the Centre is now home to approximately 130 children. The Centre’s goal is to eventually house, educate and care for at least 1,000 orphans from within Uganda.

The mission is to raise these once broken and abandoned lives and allow them to mature into empowered and self-sustaining adults, who will transform their communities and the generations to come.

During the performances there will be an opportunity to donate, sponsor children, and purchase handcrafted items from Africa. All proceeds from each tour go directly toward supporting the work of Kampala Children’s Centre which is to rescue and save more lives and give the gift of a bright future.
