Peace through music, dance and drama, Uganda

Requested by

Mama Africa International Organisation

Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?

MAIO Cultural Troupe promotes inclusive unity and peace. Through music, dance drama and working together as brothers and sisters, even though the participants come from different tribes and religions. MAIO is an abbreviation of “Mama Africa International Organization.”

We are very much aware of the fact that we the children and people of Uganda and Africa as whole have never known true peace since independence. Our country is dominated mostly by a culture of violence caused mainly by struggle for survival and power on ethnic and religious lines.

What is your project and how will it help?

Whenever our country is heading towards elections the campaign begins, but on tribal and religions lines. We feel that this country will never have sustainable development unless all of us work towards a generation with a new heart that will have no room for decisions and actions based on ethnic or religious divisions.

We are trying to support the children from MAIO and those from the community to raise their tuition and other domestic needs. We are also helping the country in fighting and uniting Ugandans through music.

How can other people partner with you on your project?

We are looking for friends around the world to help us get moving with our projects by:

- Raising our voice in your area
- Volunteering
- Buy a drum or a costume
- Support us
- Pray for us
