We Support Music

“As an alumnus of the Odessa Permian High School Band, I can look back and see so many life lessons that were learned as a result of being a part of a great music program. And although a large part of the experience was the friendships and relationships formed learning to work as a team striving for great things, none of that would have happened without a strong educator committed to excellence that kept the standards high and helped us believe they were attainable. N-Tune Music and Sound is dedicated to keeping that kind of educator in West Texas.”

Elgon Youth Brass Band – Mbale District, Eastern Uganda

Elgon Youth Development Centre with it’s core project Elgon Youth Brass Band, is a community based organization located in Mbale District, Eastern Uganda, the project started in 2009 as a result of the appalling poverty situation in the community that had led to a rise in crime rates, street children, early pregnancies and early marriages leave alone dropping out of school by many children and youth. Lack of employment, death or separation of parents, lack of school fees and other scholastic materials, drug and forms of child abuse have been responsible for the increased number of unemployed and street children.

Founders of the organization discovered that providing the affected and vulnerable children and youth with a means of survival and keeping them busy can help in reducing the impact of this situation on the community.

Members decided to form the organization as a means of reaching vulnerable youth and children who would in turn support the community and the society at large. The organization has recruited beneficiaries aged 5-25 from the community and surrounding communities but mainly needy children . The primary beneficiaries are expected to help themselves and later their siblings and the community.

In the short time of its existence, the organization has impressed the community as the children who have benefited from its programs have been seen as useful to the community.

The aim is to give vulnerable children the chance to learn skills that would offer them a route out of poverty, lifting them off the streets and away from the risks of drug culture, violence and crime. The proceeds from individual and group efforts will be used for meeting scholastic costs, meeting personal and basic family needs and saving for the future.
