Russell Crump, the Association’s Vice President, said: “I am immensely proud to of our team in Uganda who have fought against all the odds to win the places. Chances for Children is exactly what it says. To think ten years ago these children were running scared, starving and destitute in the streets of Kampala to dancing barefoot in front of thousands is a true story of belief and courage. I would like this great achievement to inspire all burgeoning performers to never give in regardless of creed colour or background.” 

“The whole team at Chances for Children would like to thank all our sponsors and friends for their generosity and belief over the years and we look forward to your continued support,” Russell said.
