Watoto song and dance troupe from Uganda, run through their routines flawlessly last week in Chilliwack.


he tour is coming to Chilliwack, bringing a dynamic worship experience by those who were once orphans, sharing their journeys to redemption and demonstrating God’s desire to be a loving father to all mankind.


Gary Skinner, Watoto Founder says, “God’s heart for the marginalised is not just to see individuals rescued but rather to see them thrive as their lives are transformed by His good news. The stories of the children are real and represent thousands of others who are experiencing this incredible transformation.”

Watoto Children’s Choirs have travelled internationally since 1994 as advocates for the estimated 50 million children in Africa, orphaned as a result of HIV/AIDS, war, poverty and disease. 

Accompanied by a team of adults, the choir presents Watoto’s vision and mission through their stories, music and dance. Watoto choirs act as ambassadors to raise awareness about the plight of the orphaned and vulnerable children of Africa. 

The concert is free; there will be a love offering taken.
