  • Description

    Description

    We are a multiple-branched group that focuses on uplifting arts and culture in Uganda through cultural exchange and creativity. It’s a group of talents with an objective of achieving education and a better future through the use of their talents in performing arts .
    Our name in Kiswahili means ‘blessings’. Several of our children are orphaned or come from broken homes where the existing guardians or parents are unable to care for them. Our goal is to be a blessing to these vulnerable children such that they can be a blessing to themselves and others.

    Our Mission
    To make sure that young people and the youth can archive education and a bright future through growing their talents and enhance African cultural values through entertainment by providing a good blend of African Music genres with a contemporary spice


    We do this through training them different skills but most especially in the Music, dance and dram , we run food festivals at our centre in Gayaza. Here we feed over 500 people and children on a given outreach.

    This way, we meet a so many children that lost chances of going to school due to poverty and lose of their parents, we help connect them in school as we look for sponsors for them.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Uganda is Africa’s cultural microcosm. We capture the amazing cultural songs, dances and unique instruments from the 56 nationalities (tribes), weaves them with humorously informative stories and presents them in an authentic but artistically developed spectacle every Fridays at 7pm, and Sundays at 6pm – an experience not to be missed by the entire family. For international guests to Uganda, this is the best introduction to Africa’s culture and ways of life, and firm bridge to your own country and culture

    Ugandan Local food day, here our visitors / volunteers get a chance to testing a new type of African food and the way its prepared and its histroical back ground like when and why they used to prepares such food. This have every Saturday.
