Mbale Community Music Foundation

(Unverified non-profit organisation)

Mbale Community Music Foundation is registered as a non-government community based organization and was started by a Freelance musician with the aim of helping vulnerable children (many of which are street children) and those coming from the poorest families in the community so that they become skilled, productive and self-sustainable to overcome poverty through skills empowerment for social transformation.

Many children in Uganda are homeless (street children) and impoverished. They need care and education. Some are single orphans, some total orphans and others were neglected and dropped by their parents. 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. Some children lost their parents due to an illness like AIDS, Malaria, and other related diseases and others are dropped and run out from home because of severe child abuse caused by the high level of alcoholism in the country that has made their parents irresponsible.

Saved by music foundation has resorted to collecting the children and giving them a better living as compared to that they have had before and give them education.
