Well, they are a group of kids between the ages of 2 and 15 who live in a children’s home in Uganda called Masaka Kids Africana. All these children lost their parents to war, the AIDS epidemic, or extreme poverty but have now found a new home filled with loving sisters and brothers. In fact, due to these horrible circumstances Uganda has the world’s most orphans!

“In spite of the tragedy that has marred their young lives,” Masaka Kids Africana explains, “the children are radiant with hope, musically gifted, and wonderfully entertaining.

Nothing can hold these wonderful children back as they have big dreams like the rest of us. The organization helps them achieve these dreams by giving these wonderful children a home, an education, and healthcare. And when they aren’t busy studying they practice their song and dance-and how!
