The choir is an international Hope Exchange. Many of the children in the choir have come from some of the most desperate circumstances in Kenya, yet they offer hope through their songs, laughter, joy and passion for God.

The choir hopes to also bring awareness to the needs of the people in Kenya; build awareness of the 410 Bridge mission and model in Kenya; and raise money to support the vision and purpose of the 410 Bridge, including projects and partnerships affecting the children of the Daraja Children's Choir.

The 410 Bridge is an organization that partners with individuals and organizations to help the people of Kenya access fresh water, have access to education and health care, learn about microenterprise and grow in spiritual development.
