  • Description


    Am an ex-street boy , after being rescued by music i decided to form a project that would help transform the many street children still leaving on the street going through the same hell that i went through and the most disadvantaged young people , with the aim of using music as a tool to help them become skilled, productive and self-sustainable to overcome poverty through skills empowerment for social transformation. Many of the children go on streets because either their all or one of their parents died of AIDS and other related and tropical diseases or because they are abused by their parents due to the high level irresponsible drinking of alcohol that render these parents being not in control of providing the necessary basic family needs hence children resort to streets in search of a living.

    We need music, arts and dance teachers........Our foundation aims to offer a high quality standard of living to the disadvantaged children and total orphans through proving for them shelter, food, clothing, medical care and high quality education and equipping them with skills that can grant them a competitive living in this world. We tend to completely bridge the gap between children with no parents and those children with parents.

    Our foundation is such an organization that wants to protect the rights and privileges of those children with no rights.

    We use music as a tool to help in the transformation of disadvantaged young people. So we are looking for people with an ideal of music to help with our organization.

    Volunteers will spend 2-3 hours (of course with breaks) helping in teaching our children how to read, sing and play a musical instrument. Most of the instruments are brass and keyboard. You don't need to be a professional, as long as you have the musical, art and dance passion in you...then we need you.
