Give Us a Home, Give Us Hope
On 30 June last year, 27 young Africans from Amitofo Care Centre’s (ACC) Yuan Tong School in Malawi came to Singapore. They gave a dazzling performance of the Chinese classic Journey to the West: An African Interpretation at the Kallang Theatre. These youngsters were a sight to behold. On the stage, each and every one of them was as spectacular as the King of Monkeys himself. Their display of Chinese martial arts was full of skill and vigour. What was even more remarkable was their proficiency in Chinese. Not only were they fluent in Chinese, but they were also able to belt out a number of songs in Chinese and other languages that drew spontaneous applause from the whole audience.
