SPRINGETTSBURY TWP, YORK COUNTY - The city of York is making way for some kids with big voices!  Matsiko World Orphan Choir performed at Autumn House East in York County.

The choir is comprised of orphaned and at-risk children from Peru, India, and Liberia, who tour to raise awareness of underprivileged children who aren't able to get an education, and to gain sponsorship from people that they meet on their travels.

Matsiko means "hope", and the kids sing about their wishes of overcoming the struggles that they face - and the life-changing effects of receiving an education. Because of the program, these children now have the ability to go to school.
