Agape – We are Together

A couple of years ago we watched a film called We Are Together. If you have not seen it, it is worth getting the DVD and the CD of the music.  The film is deeply affecting and the music is just beautiful – it is sung by the choir of children at the orphanage. The orphanage is in Kwa Zulu Natal in the Valley of a Thousand Hills – emKhambathini in Zulu which means the Place of the Giraffe Acacia Trees.

 

The Valley of a Thousand Hills

From their website ‘Agape was founded by a lady called Gogo “Grandma” Zodwa. She was working as an HIV counselor and found that many of the people she was counseling expressed deep concern about what would happen to their children when they were no longer around. So Zodwa established Agape to look after these children.’

Something I did not know was that Agape is a Greek word meaning ‘unconditional love.’

Anyway, watch the film, buy the CD! You won’t regret it. And listen out (in the film) for a song called Pigogo (Peacock) – absolutely exquisite.
