Abaana New Life Choir

Abaana’s  New Life Choir is visiting St. Patrick’s Church on Tuesday 26th March 2019.


Abaana is a Christian based charity set up for the benefit of less privileged people in Africa. The word “abaana” means “children” in the language of Uganda (East Africa). Since 2007 Abaana has been changing the lives of the children living on the streets of Kampala, Uganda’s capital. Children with no home to go to at the end of the day, surviving by begging or looking for work to survive. Abaana sees the potential in each street child and works alongside partners to provide support for these street kids – giving basic medical care, a good meal, playing games, telling bible stories, with a view to supporting them with an opportunity for a good education.


Abaana’s  New Life Choir is a group of 20 children who are beneficiaries of Abaana’s projects across Uganda. They are children of primary school age, accompanied by 10 adults (3 of whom are Ugandan), and they are embarking of a tour of the UK and Ireland from February to June 2019. Their visit to St. Patrick’s Parish on 26th March marks the only Dublin venue of their extensive tour. It promises to be a great evening of song – in both African and English – by wonderful Ugandan kids ranging in ages from 7 to 12.


Typically the concert would start at 7pm, ending at 8.30pm, so it would be the  perfect opportunity for all the family to attend.
