afccMusic is truly a universal language and has always been a source of comfort for those in the most challenging of circumstances. The African Children’s Choir has helped children find hope by bringing their music to the world.

About The African Children’s Choir: “Thirty years ago, Ray Barnett was on a humanitarian trip to war-torn Uganda when he gave a small boy a ride from his decimated home to the safety of another village. During the journey, the child did what he knew how to do best – he sang. That simple song of dignity and hope became the catalyst for a program that has changed the lives of thousands of children and reshaped the future of the African continent. ‘When I went back to Canada and people were not very interested in Uganda, I remembered this small boy,’ Ray explained. ‘I knew that if only a group of these beautiful children could go to the West, people would be deeply moved and would certainly want to help.’ From there the African Children’s Choir was born.”
