Provide a safe “place” – an ideal family environment that fosters love and compassion
Elevate self-esteem, confidence, leadership and creativity through music, dance, and poetry
Provide formal quality education to break the intergenerational cycle of poverty
Each graduate shares what they’ve been given back to community (i.e. love, knowledge, tools, skills)
We believe it is important that young people grow up with the love of a supportive family and a place to call home. In a family environment they learn how to positively interact, cooperate and support one another. Further, with guidance they learn domestic work and how to take care of their personal lives. So, for a continued, sustainable and amplified impact, we have developed a 5- year strategic plan which seeks to fulfil four crucial needs.
1. build the Bitone home (priority)
2. set up a skills training center
3. establish a sustainable garden/farming project
4. build the Bitone Academy
Statistically, Uganda is considered the world’s youngest country with a median age of just 15.91. About 60% of the Ugandan population is under 18 years, many of whom lack adequate education and meaningful life skills necessary for employment or entrepreneurial ventures. Statistics further indicate that youth unemployment in Uganda stands at 62%. The lack of basic skills such as computer literacy and leadership skills contribute to the youth unemployment narrative. The harsh realities of daily survival rob them of the ability to envision a different future – for themselves and their communities.
