Heart for African People is a registered nonprofit organisation in Uganda (formerly known as Deo Ministries). In 2019 Heart for African People started a choir project called Muwendo Children’s Choir to travel and raise support for the ministry to transform lives of the orphans and needy families in our community.
Heart for African People has partnered with Grace Christian Fellowship through Strategic Ministry Partnerships International to bring Muwendo Children’s Choir to USA this year. The children will share their hope for a bigger and brighter future through song, dance, and the playing of musical instruments. Despite growing up in disadvantaged communities, these children desire to show the world the hope of the good news of Jesus Christ and that they too, can live meaningful and abundant lives!
The children will perform at schools and churches to spread the Gospel of Jesus and raise awareness and support for their community, Kosovo, back home. Our goal is to see 500 new kids sponsored to reduce the number of children on the streets of Kosovo. A second goal is to build a Child Development Center which will house a kindergarten, Library and offices. and a third goal is to facilitate the renovation of the classrooms at Treasured Kids School. Through Muwendo Choir’s Sponsorship Program, children will be provided with Christian discipleship, educational opportunity, microenterprise training and healthcare support to better meet their physical, emotional and spiritual needs.
Throughout the six-month tour, there will be opportunities for the children to stay with different host families as part of a cultural and educational exchange. It is our hope that the children will learn from host families about their line of work, exposing them to various skills and expertise. We desire that the children observe various careers and skills, and have seeds of interest planted in them so they may discover what they enjoy and how their unique gifts could fit a particular career path. Their time with host families will also connect them with people who could help them in many ways as they follow their life’s ambitions!
Through Muwendo Children’s Choir debut tour, our hope is to not only impact the families we meet with the love of Jesus Christ, but to help transform the lives of needy children back home in our community.
