Happy Angels Youth Brass Band

$3,860 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 48 people in 28 months
The Happy Angels Youth Brass Band  in Kampala, Uganda is grateful for the privilege to serve 211 orphans (up from 100 when AMLuthiers became involved in early 2016) with housing, education, and band performance and also musical instrument repair as a career.  Currently the project needs funds to mail 50 donated instruments from Spain to Uganda, equipment for instrument repair, and also for housing and food expenses.

Our landlord comes every day the last week of the month until we pay.  We still need a place of our own, but continue to rent until we can purchase land. We appreciate the 4 sleeping rooms we have now and the kitchen where we prepare a small daily meal of beans and corn meal mush.

The past 25 years we have helped hundreds of orphans and needy youth to prepare for careers and be productive in the community.  Your contribution of any amount makes us very happy angels.  The few instruments we have are shared among the over 200 children ages 6 to 23.  Thanks to your help we now have 25 brass and woodwind instruments.  More are ready to be sent from Spain. 

Your assistance is also a blessing to the community, as we serve in a musical capacity in many events.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.  Please check our website and our FaceBook  page for current activities.  Thanks for giving.

Roy Howard of the AMLuthiers  will receive your #GoBeyondGiving donation in Kansas, then send funds to either Spain (for shipping donated instruments) or to Kampala for direct deposit with the band director,  Edrine Wasswa .

Here we see them cleaning the area (after the floods) and getting ready for the shipment.
