Fund the Music Project to help disadvantaged children in Uganda

Requested by

Prince Joseph Foundation

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

Prince Joseph Foundation is a registered community based Organization which is in a bid to contribute toward the prevention, rehabilitation, education and resettlement of orphans and other vulnerable children as well as supporting families in need.The number of people we help are identified by local community leaders,religious leaders and others come due to area crisis like internal Conflicts,Family affairs/neglect,wars like in Northern Uganda which has caused many people to live on the streets especially children and that’s where we get them.
we currently have 20(Twenty) OVCs in our orphanage located in Lungujja-Kosovo and supports 480 in our new school located in Ngangi-Kaluguzza,Kibale district of Mid Western Uganda.

Apart from helping children,we also need to create access to clean water in places where water is not available,likewise,Agriculture is one of the projects we are running whereby we have already cultivated the land as we prepare to plant maize,beans,and rearing pigs and chicks for the sustainability and food production of the Orphanage and the School.

Prince Joseph Foundation is dedicated for helping disadvantaged children as well as supporting families in need. We all know that these people face many challenges and many of them carry them in their heads. Here we are trying to help these disadvantaged children to forget the hardship by creating music project. We believe this project will create new memories in their lives.

What is your project and how will it help?

Project Summary:

Music Project for disadvantaged children(The Prince Joseph Children Choir) is one of the projects run by Prince Joseph Foundation Africa.This project was started in February 2013 with twenty(20) children from Prince Joseph Orphanage Center and later we added ten(10)children from the community.
Music is carried into production to Churches,Orphanages,old peoples homes,Schools and we also have a plan to take Music to identified places like Play grounds,where we can gather street children and educate,empower,and inform them through the songs we made.

Project Purposes.

-Music for disadvantaged children helps participates to develop their skills/talents.
-it has builds self-confidence in the participates.
-it empowers,educated and Entertain not only participates,but also other children who are still on streets,old people and troubled people where we minister.
-It creates peace and love not only to children in the Orphanage but also in places where we deliver the production.
