I am Ssifu Clinton Kibuuka, the founder of Bwengula Circus from Kosovo Community in Kampala, Uganda. I was born and raised up from Kosovo Slum in Kampala Uganda. I am an Artist doing acrobatics and gymnastics for a social change. The arts of acrobatics and gymnastics have transformed my life since I was a little kid. Now it is time to give back to the community!
With my fellow artists, I started Bwengula Circus Project in the year of 2014. Our work has managed to make a change in people’s lives through sharing skills.
The people living in the slums of Kampala are struggling a lot with unemployment, drug addiction, insufficient healthcare and lack of education. Establishing arts of acrobatics and gymnastics in the community saves people’s lives by giving them good support in terms of health and body fitness. In our program, we provide a space for children and young people to develop their personalities, learning together and being productive in the community. Furthermore the children and youth of Bwengula Circus develop a sense of belonging and grow social skills like team work and responsibility. Through performances and divers community outreach activities, we reach many people inside and outside of the community. Especially through public performances, our advanced participants can get national and international work opportunities.
This is the time where we need help from many people around the world to support our work and develop our program.
We want to take this opportunity to thank each and everyone who has supported us since day 1 to reach our first goal of 5000€, we are so humbled and happy to have a beautiful lovely family like you.
SAVE A CHILD
Yet again another time, we are here to ask you for more donations to keep running our daily programs to sustain our kids life at the project. Things are not going well ever since the break up of Covid-19 in our country (Uganda) , No shows, Transport, Foods are very expensive & most of our kids are facing a challenge of going back on streets because they have nothing to eat yet we also have limited resources which can only cater for a few kids so please kindly support us to save a child.
Adding to that,
There are still a lot of supplies missing to provide a safe training ground and to offer our participants a more divers learning program.
Most of the participants are not going to school either, because the families can't afford school fees. Hence, we are including reading, writing and english classes and additionally to that some bible studies for the participants. All the teachers and mentors involved in the program are donating their skills and time for the young children to develop.
This is how we have planned it so far:
Mon - Sat: Acrobatic, Circus & Gymnastics trainings
--> What we need: see details below
Sat/Sun afternoon: Bible study
--> What we need: 15 English bibles (30.000 UGX each = 8€ per Bible)
Sat/Sun: Motivation and brain storming games
Monthly Food ( 1000K SHS) = 250€
Hostel Rent ( 400K SHS ) = 100€
Daily necessities and clean water for the weekly programs going on:
--> 150.000 UGX ( = 37€ ) per week to feed 20-30 people // approx. 148€ per month
With your support we will be able to satisfy a lot of needs and make a big difference within the community. If you are interested in material donation please don’t hesitate to contact us.
