Though borders may have moved and country names changed, the arts have survived in Uganda and through all of Africa. Music, dance, and story-telling records our history and instills values. They help raise children, celebrate milestones, provide assurance, dispense justice, proclaim belief and sustain societies. For those who have lost parents, neighbors, elders and who witness the daily struggle to carry on, these rhythms and patterns are a comfort. They are our teachers and tools of survival.
Harvest Missions Choir was started in 2011 by George and Christie Magera with the idea of promoting young talents. They work with communities to empower them to end the high rates of poverty and diseases. The Choir aims at uplifting and empowering the youth and the communities we serve in with education, health care and clean water which is the future of our country Uganda.
We would love to work with the choir to raise awareness and funds for the disabled, orphans, widows and the vulnerable people. We would love to use the funds to pay tuition fees, build clinics, start up entrepreneurial skills and activities in rural communities and build capacity that can help rural communities and the less privileged to have more hope in the world we live in.
We will stage shows in and outside Uganda and the children are selected form our community and the communities we work with.
Harvest Missions Choir is planning to travel to the US with 25 children and 5 staff members to create awareness about our struggle here in Uganda on issues concerning absolute poverty, diseases especially HIV/AIDS, education and community sustainability issues. We will conduct workshops, presentations with people of all ages and different beliefs.
Please contact us at EKUBO ministries if you would like the choir to visit you in your area.
