We are excited to show off our new musical instruments. Music and dance are very much an integral part of Ugandan culture and we were really keen to get more instruments in order to expand and motivate our musicians!

UK school Dauntsey Academy Primary School in Wiltshire answered our prayers by raising funds for us at a special music event. We sent off Joseph (our operations manager) to Jinja to find the instruments as they are not made in our town, Mbale.

We were absolutely delighted when he came back with a brand new huge xylophone, drums, harps, pipes, shakers and more dancing skirts. Even the staff got excited and joined in, although judging by the noise, more practice is required! Many thanks again to Laura Wiltshire and all at Dauntsey Academy for making this happen for us!
