GROW  TO BUILD is an international farming and agriculture organization (#R2000001668848) currently working in Uganda. Founded by Wasswa Peter Sean aka Sean Sisa MC and led by Hip Hop artists who are working with the community to grow crops which can be sold to pay for children's school fees and supplies for mainstream education. Donations also pay for art materials and equipment to run Hip Hop workshops and events in art, music, and dance.  

In Uganda, it is difficult for young people to be able to afford school fees and it is hard for the community to find ways to generate the money to cover them. There is also a need to teach young people how to work the land to grow food. Hip Hop in Uganda has been opening doors for young people and helping to raise aspirations through organizations like GROW TO BUILD/Kulture Future Kids for many years.

By donating you will be contributing directly towards making a self-generating method of raising money to pay school fees for young people while building important life skills and giving access to arts education. 

GROW  TO BUILD also has a cumulative effect because it teaches young people the techniques and skills needed to grow their own food while also making the benefits become self-sustaining. 

Phase 1 - DONE. We have purchased tools, boots, seeds needed for cassava farming. 

Phase 2 - DONE.  We have 6 acres of land to work. 

*We have put buiding a chicken house on hold as we turn our focus on the children, education, the positive power of hip hop and the arts. 

The big aspiration is to one day have a Hip Hop School building/centre for the young people so they can learn Hip Hop, mainstream education and farming skills all in the same place. 

Please donate and leave a message of encouragement for the GROW TO BUILD TEAM  and youth participants.
