Western Uganda's Got Talent
In July 2017 Foye launched this Talent Search Drive where various youth groups both girls and boys have been given an open platform to showcase their different talents in areas of music, comedy, poetry, public speaking, dance and drama. With the support from our local sponsors, some of the winners have been signed by several recording agents besides the prize awards we normally award to the finalists.
Mbarara Ghetto Youth and Girl Child Empowerment Program
We started the ghetto – refugee kids outreach drives in April 2017 after realizing a rampant increase in the number of street kids within Mbarara city. Through these drives we get to speak and listen to these vulnerable groups on how they ended up on these streets of Mbarara and one of the common reasons given is always related to Home Based Violence and home insecurities. By working with a few orphanages and churches we’ve successfully managed to secure a safe environment for some of the kids and also reconnected those willing to get back to their homes.
