Watoto, an internationally renowned non-profit providing rescue for orphans and widows in Africa along with the Gasparilla International Film Festival presents an inspiring night of film and live song and dance performances.
“Restore Gulu: Child Soldier No More” documents the powerful story of restoration and hope in a community ravaged by an unthinkable war on children and the journey of healing and forgiveness that must take place to rebuild a community. Click here to watch the preview.
Immediately following the film, the globally renowned Watoto Children’s Choir comprised of former orphans ages 6 to 15 years old, on tour from Uganda, Africa will appear live to perform their newest Broadway style song and dance production “Beautiful Africa: A New Generation”.
The Watoto Children’s Choir recently gained worldwide attention by performing for the Queen of England at Buckingham Palace and also for the President at the White House.
All proceeds will go to benefit the continued rescue of orphans and vulnerable women in Africa as well as the local film community.
