This weekend we are hosting some of the kids from the Children of the World International Children’s Choir, a program of World Help. As I understand the program the take orphans from all over the world and take them on tour for this program for a year. They then return to theit home country and are returned to the orphanages they came from.
As far as the program raising awarness and compasion for the plight of the orphan I’m really on board with these guys. And from what I can tell I really like what they are doing in the countries that they are in. I’m just really torn on what I think about this choir.
First off they are bounced all over the country, in various homes, constantly on the road. Lots of exposure sure, but no stability.Secondly they have a life of absolute luxury for a year, but then they go back tot he very problem situation they came from. Exactly how are they supposed to process all of that?
I am looking for feedback from people on their program, I’d like to hear back from anyone that knows anything about these guys.
By the way, the link is to a really cool video of theirs from one of the songs I loved during college.
