John Ntabaazi and the One Love Troupe
John Ntabaazi is one of the founders of "One Love Troupe". His passionate enthousiasm for music is the basis of a push towards a better future for children in pover circumstances
From early 2014 we supported John at secondary school. This support has been extended towards the African Institute for Music in Kampala, where John follows his third year (2018) in becoming a music teacher.
John is grateful for the support throughout the years. Whe he started his music academy lessons and observed the many children in his surrouondings in Kampala. having little education and possibilities, he decided to start helping them towards a better future.
John started to give some lessons in music, dance and singing, soon there were more children than possibilities. This led to the start of a team, named "One Love Troupe".
One Love Troupe is a group of 16 children. the learn fast and occasionally they are invited to parties, moreover they can be seen in a performance in their neighbourhood.
The One Love Troupe plays traditional Ugandan instruments, including various types of drums, xylophone, panflutes, adungus (a kind of stringed instrument). The music is used as an accompaniment to traditional singing and dancing.
From mid-2017, John has rented a 1-room cottage with the support of several sponsors to give these children shelter and from the start of 2018 6 children are being sponsored to go to school.
All free time that John has in addition to his education he spends practicing with the children and he also teaches them in English. It gives the children more self-confidence and again the prospect of a good future.

Safehouse in Matuga
Beth Elisha is a safehouse, raising 8 girls and 1 boy. "Auntie" Beatrice Mukisa is responsible and takes care of the children
Beth Elisha means, translated from Hebrew, the house protected by God
Starting 2011, the children went to school for the very first time in their life. At the moment that Stichting Bulamu found the children, the were living in a tiny house (16 square meters) with 12 individuals; no money for rent, food and water. Individual and organized sponsoring and donation of cloths and utensils improved the situation and led to multiple moves in and around Matuga. Food, medication and education are secured.
