The African Children's Choir - Rwanda
Realizing the enormity of the task Ray and his team came up with a unique approach. The only way to make a meaningful difference was to impact the lives of these children, one child at a time.
"Inspired by the singing of one small boy, we formed the first African Children’s Choir to show the world that Africa’s most vulnerable children have beauty, dignity and unlimited ability."
The African Children’s Choir also forged a special relationship with the Gisimba Memorial Center. The Choir helps fund the center, provides assistance with operating costs, meals, clothing, school supplies, and medical care. The organization also helps support children and staff with counseling for post-traumatic stress disorder and fund various community development projects.
Each year, 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.
