Amitofo Care Centre returns to D.C. with stunning live performances


The children of the Amitofo Care Centre returned to Washington D.C. on Saturday for a two-hour event that raised $20,000 to support the orphanage, the result of a four-month effort to organize the Washington, D.C. leg of their 12-city tour across the U.S.


The concert, held at Walter Johnson High School in Bethesda, MD., featured a talented crew of 17 ACC children, who unleashed a unique blend of martial arts, dancing, singing, and acting before a crowd of nearly 750 people. The performance marked the return of the ACC, an international NGO that houses more than 1000 orphans throughout Malawi, Lesotho, and Swaziland. They first performed their signature fusion of Chinese and African dance and song during their inaugural visit to Washington, D.C. in 2014.

The ACC is led by its Taiwanese founder, Venerable Master Hui Lee, who arrived in Africa in 1992 and established the ACC to provide a “safe and comfortable environment for [orphans] with sufficient opportunities to learn basic morality and insight through Buddhism and life skills.”
