  • Description


    A am a practicing librarian by profession where I earn my living and able fend for my family and the organization; and self taught artist whose works 40% goes to the kids art creations program. I serve with children inspiring them through arts at my charity organization and in the same regard invite us be apart of our journey into realising its vision and mission.

    The need for partners and people support our cause and increase our outreach availability is our greatest prayer, meeting persons who can give their time to grow with us. Here we seek to have volunteers to support in the building of structures and its growth. We run a kids art creations program that we have to save and engage every two months too.

    We see seek recommendations and networking for our charity especially with the art program and our pioneer innovation vipawa children's art museum project.

    We looking for volunteers share their expertise in bettering the design of our website, increase the awareness of our work, The making of the temporary structure for the vipawa children's art museum where we need support in realising resources. It is through this that we will leave a landmark in preserving heritage for African children throughout the 54 states.

    We truly need persons that appreciate our efforts in realizing a heritage for children but as well in the realising of their abilities.

    Our temporary structure repairs shed is in Jinja town where our offices too are but needs more support in having it completed.

    Our outreach community is in Bbambula mityana where the children are, we make trips there after realising a saving for us to be able run the art program.

    We would be glad have volunteers who share experience in the fields we enabling these children's but also ideas into the proposal writings for our programs and projects.

    We also have a demonstration farm we growing crops to support the ministry with an income and always welcome join in especially weekends when we go gardening.

    We also hope that as we brainstorm posibilities of fundraising for the project can get a volunteer in the field of fundraising and donations to help us realise a go fund me page for our projects that are geared to see children appreciate and discover their abilities.

    We also would be glad receive partners ready to share with us the growth of the charity and recommend opportunities for our growth and in building structures for the organization as this is crucial. We believe in learning from each other.
    We also would appreciate people invest in these our programs and especially the museum project

    We run a garden for the organization rented out that we grow crops that support the organization sustainability where we go every Saturday away from Home.

    We are realising funds to finalise the temporary structure for the vipawa children's art museum project and we will need volunteers in the same field but as well support us here this in town.

    We also would be humbling to share our language and learn from the languages of volunteers in due course.

    We will be glad have volunteers with art experiences both visual and performing arts but as well in ways to fundraise fo art projects like our kids art creations program and museum project. But as well share this with kids in the community where we can plan and travel and share ways we can better the opportunities for children and grow our coverage.

    Thank you
    For the Kingdom
