The Brass for Africa supported music programmes and music teachers have provided access to children and a trusted channel for communication that did not previously exist. No more so than for the children residing at Kampiringisa Juvenile Rehabilitation Centre.
Through this access Brass for Africa has been able to support psycho-social care and counselling for all 200+ young people at the centre. All of the local music teachers have also undergone basic awareness training in psycho-social care and children's rights.
Reacting to the need of the very young and vulnerable girls residing in the Katwe slum area of Kampala, Brass for Africa has funded the construction of the Mummy Foundation Building. We also fund salaries for key members of teaching and management staff at the facility which is now a registered kindergarten, a library, ICT suite and education centre for the empowerment of the often overlooked young girls and women residing in the slum.
Supporting our Ugandan music eduction delivery partners Mlisada is very important to the charity. To this end we fund several key personnel roles within the organisation and provide a monthly feeding grant for the children living in the home.
Recently we have started to support the Frances Gaskin Rescue Home in Liberia, west Africa with a monthly feeding grant.
