Don’t miss out on Uganda’s dancers Friday


South Whidbey Islanders: Please rejoice and welcome the dozen-plus young people from Kampala, Uganda, who will be with us during the next week to share the transforming power of music and dance. Members of the touring program, Dance of Hope, will team with our own South Whidbey High School Jazz band 7 p.m., Friday, March 9 at the SWHS Auditorium. Attendance is free but donations will be welcome.

They’re here representing M-Lisada Children’s Home, a highly regarded orphanage in Kampala, Uganda that has reclaimed over 400 children from the streets. M-Lisada Children’s Home houses 50 children. Another 80 children come in from the streets every day, for showers, food, counseling, music lessons, a safe place to play and unqualified support.

We had the joy of seeing a preview of their spirited performance and are advising all of our friends that Friday evening’s event is one they’ll not want to miss.
