So… Who Are The Masaka Kids Africana And Why Is Their Work So Important?
The Masaka Kids Africana are a wonderfully gifted group of dancers from Masaka, Uganda. The group exists because of an organisation that does unbelievable work for orphans in Uganda.
They Are Fighting The Orphan Crisis In Uganda Using The Arts
There are currently more orphans in Uganda than anywhere else on the planet, unfortunately, the figure was estimated to be 1.6 million children in 2012 (source: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov).
There are multiple reasons for this including the AIDS pandemic, decades of civil conflict, and extreme poverty in many parts of the country.
The mission of the Masaka Kids Africana is to give back to these orphans using the passionate expression of music and dance.
However, The Masaka Kids Africana is so much more than just a place for kids to learn to sing and dance. The organisation gives children shelter, food, clothing, medical care, education and keeps the children safe.
Their brilliant work has resulted in children gaining an education and ultimately the life skills they need to build a brighter future for themselves.
