The Mwangaza Children’s Choir, started in 2004, is an initiative of Africa Renewal Ministries (ARM) to increase the awareness of ARM in the western world. The choir is made up of 20 musically talented children, ages 8-12, who admirably represent the orphaned and poverty-stricken youth of Uganda. The choir, which is based in Gaba, Uganda, tours as a ministry outreach of ARM to share a special message of hope through original Ugandan song and dance. In the process, the children seek to raise awareness of, and resources for, the churches, schools, orphanage, medical clinics and child sponsorship programs that have been established by Africa Renewal Ministries.
Mwangaza (pronounced m-wahn-GAH-zah) is a Swahili word for “shining light.”
