The Pearl of Africa Children’s Choir was founded in 1983 by Molly and Paul Wasswa, two teachers who established the Molly and Paul Christian Schools and The Molly and Paul Child Care Foundation which seeks to improve the health, education and welfare of people suffering through disease, war and poverty in Uganda.  The two Organisations run schools in Kampala and Masaka Districts of Uganda.  The Choir members are selected from talented children who attend the seven schools of Molly and Paul school.  They present a fast moving, exhilarating, programme of music and dance as they tour the country, hosted by generous families, visiting local schools, sharing skills and experiences and raising much needed funds.
