Children of Uganda is excited to return to the Broadway Presbyterian stage with their award-winning Tour of Light performance!
Through rapid rhythms, quicksilver movements, commanding drums, haunting flutes, funny folktales and sweet songs of joy and hope, COU’s Tour of Light performances capture the rich culture of Uganda. The music and dance troupe, comprised of children and youth age 10 and up, are ambassadors for Uganda’s estimated 3.5 million orphans. Together, they will promote global awareness of the AIDS crisis and help raise funds for fellow orphans and vulnerable children in their homeland.
When & Where
Children of Uganda
Children of Uganda has cared for thousands of children over the past 16 years.
There is an orphan crisis in Uganda. The country is home to millions of children who have lost one or both parents to HIV/AIDS, extreme poverty and civil conflict. In fact, Uganda has the largest orphan population per capita of any country in the world - nearly ten percent.
Established in 1995, Children of Uganda cares for orphans and other disadvantaged children in Uganda with the goal of helping them become healthy and productive members of society.
As a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization headquartered in the United States, Children of Uganda works in conjunction with local non-governmental organizations in Uganda to provide education and support to hundreds of children in need.
The mission of Children of Uganda is to support and empower hundreds of orphans and vulnerable children in Uganda to lead successful and productive lives. Our vision is that all children in Uganda receive an education to become healthy, productive members of their community who assume leadership roles and positively impact Ugandan society.
Headquarters: Charles Town, West Virginia and Kampala, Uganda.
