Daraja Children's Choir to perform Aug. 4

The Daraja Children's Choir of Africa, which performed last month at Lakewood Baptist Church in Phenix City, will give a free concert at 7 p.m. Aug. 4 at Edgewood Presbyterian Church, on the corner of Macon Road and University Avenue.

Daraja means “bridge” in Swahili, and the choir, made up of 24 orphans and vulnerable children from Kenya, serve as a bridge to connect the people of Africa and America.

The choir is part of the 410 Bridge, a nonprofit organization focusing on mission work in Kenya. Call 706-561-5137.
