Imani means “believe”, and the Imani Milele Children’s Choir sings songs that inspire the listeners. Through their inspirational songs and unique cultural dances and drumming, Imani Milele is spreading a message of hope for Africa’s orphaned and vulnerable children.
The goal of Imani Milele is to promote and increase awareness to the plight of Uganda’s orphaned and vulnerable children.

The choir does this through its tours, performing great African dances, amazing drum routines and songs that tell children’s stories and dreams.
The Imani Milele Child Care programme has seen over 3,000 children benefit from the original vision that spans 21 years, when Rev. Moses Ssemanda Mbuga was compelled to help three orphans from a Kampala suburb of Lusaka — Makindye.
The programme provides physical, emotional, educational and spiritual care to these children.
Each child in the choir has experienced tremendous personal tragedy, having lost one or both parents to HIV/AIDS or other calamities, or coming from extremely poor backgrounds.
Through their music and dance, they share their hope and the belief of success and their desire to impact positively on society and the communities they hail from.
The indescribable talents of the choir enable them perform greatly crafted African traditional dances and drum routines, contemporary music, a variety of music genres with amazing vocal abilities, incredible African acappella and chants.
Being at one of the concerts will get you an opportunity to watch them perform as they interact with audiences with amazing dance moves.
Through the performances, the choir promotes child sponsorship and welcomes donations of all kinds which all go to the welfare of the children.
