Who we are

Saved by Music Foundation is a registered as a non-government community based organization and was started by ex-street children with the aim of helping vulnerable children (many of which are street children) and those coming from the poorest families in the community so that they become skilled, productive and self-sustainable to overcome poverty through skills empowerment for social transformation.

Many of the children go on streets because either their all or one of their parents died of AIDS and other related and tropical diseases or because they are abused by their parents due to the high level irresponsible drinking of alcohol that render these parents being not in control of providing the necessary basic family needs hence children resort to streets in search of a living.

Many children in Uganda are homeless (street children) and impoverished. They need care and education. Some are single orphans, some total orphans and others were neglected and dropped by their parents.Some children lost their parents due to an illness like AIDS, Malaria, and other related diseases and others are dropped and run out from home because of severe child abuse caused by the high level of alcoholism in the country that has made their parents irresponsible. This has caused most of these children to go on streets in search of what to eat and earn a living having no one to care for them.Saved by music foundation has resorted to collecting the children and giving them a better living as compared to that they have had before and give them education.
