What is the Mirembe House?
Friends of Mirembe is a group of volunteers and donors working together to serve the African Children’s Choir by providing a home for the Choir children, the Mirembe House, located on six acres near Jordan Lake in Chatham County. Mirembe means “peace” in the native language of Uganda. This spacious U.S. “home base” is a haven for the children where they can rest, play, rehearse, and focus on schoolwork between tours. While the Choir children are in residence at the Mirembe House, Friends of Mirembe provides housing, food, clothing, medical care, and transportation as well as arranging educational and cultural opportunities.
How does this help the Children in Africa?
“Mirembe House is a tremendous support to the choir, enabling us to keep our tour costs low and send more funds back to Africa to help thousands of other at-risk children.”
Founder & President, African Children’s Choir
