UBUNTU Africa in Australia
Every two years, fourteen ACC high school graduates hit the stages in cities and towns up the eastern coast of Australia. After the three-month tour students return to Africa to commence their university studies.
Whether performing in grand theatres for VIPs or school halls for eager students, they wow their audiences with a cultural extravaganza the
likes of never having been seen  in Australia.
 
Schools and community choirs have the unique opportunity to host concerts, workshops or masterclasses with these stellar young adults.
 
All funds raised on tour go towards new building projects that provide high level facilities for the education of vulnerable children livimng in the slums and remote villages in Africa.

OVER 54,000 CHILDREN ..
How?
KwaYa formed a partnership with The African Children's Choir in 2011 after a cultural exchange trip to Uganda.
Being that we are an integrity and result driven charity, we are careful as to whom we align ourselves.
ACC has been in existence for 34 years and has helped educate over 54,000 children. 
KwaYa and its members have raised substantial funds for the organistaion in the past seven years. We continue to support them because we witness where the money is spent when we travel to Uganda every second year.
  • Australian schools and community choirs host a spectacular cultural concert to raise funds for ACC projects in Africa.
  • ​​School and community choirs are invited to be the opening support act plus join UBUNTU in  the finale song.
  • UBUNTU Africa members are offered opportunites by local businesses to job shadow for a day .  
  • Masterclasses are conducted with local choirs where an African song with choreography is taught to performance standard. 
  • Workshops where the cultures of Africa and Australia are shared are undertaken at local schools.
  • Host families in each area enjoy getting to know the members of UBUNTU Africa by offering to have them stay in their homes.
