Hi guys. My name is Faustine. And I am REALLY excited to tell you guys that I am heading back to the Village of Awake in Northern Uganda in March of this year . In 2014 I launched a campaign  that was a huge success because of many people (119 donors) !! We provided 650 girls with a years supply of reusuable menstruation kits which included a hygiene kit as well as reusuable pads.

It was the largest outreach of it's kind in the Otuke District in Northern Uganda. I am feeling drawn to continue my efforts in fundraising for the woman and young girls - and so myself, and 2 other musicians decided to do another round of fundraising for #OPERATIONMENSTRUATION !!

You can check out my previous video here:


This go around myself, Mikey and Brent will be heading to Northern Uganda for a music exchange: SAME (Seattle Awake Music Exchange). Our objective with this campaign is to raise funds to purchase another round of Afripads and any other Medical Supplies needed for the Kristina Health Clinic, one of our stops while over in Uganda.

100% of the funds donated will be directly deposited to the Achon Childrens Fund (AUCF), a 501c non-profit in Uganda - started by Julius Achon, a native Ugandan and former Olympian who started AUCF to help the community rebuild from the past through improved health care and education.

Julius's story is remarkable, and his heart is that of gold.

You can read about his life journey here: Born to Run

With Love & Gratitude,

Faustine, Mikey, & Brent

As you know some of you have read that with this upcoming Uganda trip (just over a month away!!) I am able to continue my work with purchasing reusable menstrual pad kits to empower young women. We are able to do this through Achon Uganda Children’s Fund a 501 (c) 3 located in Portland, Oregon. So your donation is are TAX DEDUCTIBLE and will go directly to the project.

Whats also amazing is that I am part of a new and larger project called “SAME” - Seattle Awake Music Exchange. The Brotherton’s passion for music and trips to villages in Uganda ignited their desire to bring music from their village to the villages where they have visited in Uganda.
Maureen brought me along last year to prepare to bring additional musicians and we are SUPER EXCITED to have Brent Cowles (from You Me & Apollo) and Mike Gervais (from Mikey and Matty) joining this year’s trip to share their music and participate in service projects. The Clinic leadership has identified a critical need to start an outreach program addressing the ever present HIV/AIDS epidemic. There still exists many misconceptions about HIV/AIDS amongst the villagers and the nearest clinic to ours has an extremely heavy HIV patient load. Please consider supporting our projects. With Gratitude! <3 Faustine
