Hailed as "first rate," "inspiring," and "a celebration of dignity" by The New York Times, our Ugandan children will perform and engage in cultural exchange programs at area schools, community centers, churches, and performance venues throughout the U.S.
American students at participating schools will benefit from an in-depth cultural curriculum centered on Uganda's unique heritage. Our children will also learn valuable lessons about American culture as they travel the U.S. Together, they will unite in song and dance to better understand one another.
