Isn’t it always nice to receive gifts?
This morning we had a quick visit from Howard Reid, the UK Director of one of the top African charities Watoto.
Over the past few years we have helped Watoto out,with not only their merchandising, but also on kitting out the charities amazing choir, with Fleeces, Hoodies etc.
Every year Watoto, put together a children’s choir to come to the UK and tour churches, exhibitions & shows. This year, being the Queen’s Jubilee year, Watoto will be performing three times for the Queen, as well as their normal schedule of events.
Now we didn’t get very long to see Howard as he had to dash off to a meeting, however, he did tell me to check out the choirs recent video for their Beautiful Africa Tour.
He also gave me the latest copy of the Beautiful Africa CD, which is now playing in the office, you can’t fail to be inspired by the music and the rhythm gets you bopping in your seat.
BUT!! the icing on the cake is a gorgeous limited edition hard back book, filled with imagery and snippets from the children and volunteers in Watoto Uganda.
It highlights the story of Watoto in Uganda…
One of hope, transformation and empowerment. Since 1993 Watoto has enabled thousands of disadvantaged people to regain control of their lives and to understand their potential. With a unique holistic approach and a commitment to excellence, Watoto continue to rescue vulnerable women and children and raise them as leaders so that they can help rebuild the nations of Africa.
Make an effort to watch the video at the very least and if you wish to visit the choir at one of their amazing performances throughout the UK check in to see their schedule at http://www.watoto.com/the-choir
