A Ugandan children's choir will spread a message of hope during a visit to Oxford as part of a three month tour.

The Watoto Children’s Choir will perform songs from their album, "Better Days - There Is Hope".

The choir will be in Oxford on April 20 at New Life Covenant Church after launching their tour in London.

The choir presents the story of orphaned and abandoned African children who have received love and care to help them rise above their circumstances

Watoto Children’s Choirs have travelled extensively since 1994.

They have met Queen Elizabeth, performed for the President of the United States, and visited almost every major parliament in the world.

The choir aims to take spectators on a moving exploration of their individual stories of recovery and hope.

These young people, using song, dance, and their life stories, aim to inspire audiences with messages of optimism and courage.

The choir uses its platform to advocate for Watoto's work.

The proceeds collected from the album sales ensure Watoto's continued support for underprivileged children by providing schooling, healthcare and secure housing.

Since 1984 Watoto has rescued thousands of orphaned and abandoned babies and children, placing them in loving families.

Watoto says that its "vision remains the same" and that it is "committed to celebrating Christ and caring for community".
