“There are so many talented kids in Uganda. Africa needs to be explored more.” That is a statement we’ve heard quite so many times but never get used to.

From the likes of Chris Brown, Janet Jackson, French Montana, Alicia Keys, and many other global music icons, Uganda’s vast talents are appreciated.

About Masaka Kids Africana

Masaka Kids Africana is a group of young and talented kids from Uganda – Masaka (East-Africa). The Group is Comprises with the various multi talented young girls and boys from age 2 and above.

There are more orphans in Uganda than anywhere else in the world — over 2.4 million children — due to the AIDS epidemic, extreme poverty, and decades of civil conflict. We’re on the ground in Uganda to help as many of these young people as we can. We give children safe shelter, food, clothing, education and medical care. Through us, children gain an education and the life skills they need for future success. Their lives are completely transformed.

Masaka Kids Africana sponsored children have gone through some of the worst experiences a child could face — but through dance and song and sharing their love of Uganda, these children connect to each other and the world. They see their own potential — they have hope for their future.
