It's a group of young, talented and energetic artists who came together to organize themselves for a common cause. They now consist of 312 members (aged 5 – 18) who are trained by 15 professionals who are former beneficiaries of the same project in the traditional arts of the different cultures of Uganda and the great lakes region. 

Prioritizing artistically talented but socially disadvantaged and vulnerable children and youth, the group aims to break the vicious cycle of poverty and enable young people's ambitions to fully bloom. It provides:


free music 

dance and drama skills training

educative leisure activities for youth and children in the urban slums of Kabalagala/Kampala, capital of Uganda and neighboring communities. 

We are

part of Kiseminti Needy Children organisation (a voluntary Non-government, Non-profit making community based organization founded by Brother Lezon Mark Mugwanya in 1993 

officially registered as a community based organization in 2004

mainly funded by ISP (Insieme si puo) in Africa (Italian Non-governmental organization N.G.O) 

It's a project initiative with a mission 

to promote skills development 

to organizing educational and leisure activities for street and internally displaced youth and children.

This leisure activity occupies the children and youth in their free time and becomes a concrete possibility for them to get free education through scholarships awarded to talented students.
