Hullo Bitone Friend,
Warm greetings from Bitone Center. It is our hope that you are enjoying June 2012. We are deeply appreciative of your continued support and love for Bitone mission. Thank you so much for supporting our children. There’s no doubt that your generosity has changed children’s lives as they continue to receive education, talent/skill development and rehabilitation.


We would like to thank those persons who have made a donation to Bitone Project on GlobalGiving page. The donation you make goes directly towards children’s humanitarian support, which involves; Education, Feeding, Medical, and Accommodation costs. We would like to invite more of our friends to support our mission of saving and empowering our children by making a recurring donation to our project. We thank you in advance. To make a donation, please visit our GlobalGiving page link at:


We would like to let you know that;

  1. Aisha Blessed Nabitosi:  applied for admission at Kyambogo University to pursue a diploma in Telecommunication Engineering. Vision International has agreed to meet her Tuition. However, Bitone is expected to meet her other needed costs, which include; Admission Fees, Hostel Rent, Daily Feeding, and Scholastic Materials. Aisha is a gifted singer and talented songwriter, and dancer at Bitone Center.
  2. Augustine Namiti:  is currently preparing to sit for his Primary Leaving Examinations due to take place in October/November this year 2012. Apart from his excellent class performance, Augustine is a talented young boy –excellent dance performer and music instrumentalist who is can play xylophone, bow harps, and drums.
  3. Damalie Nabanakulya: successfully completed her senior six (high school) and is waiting for admission at the University. She wants to pursue a degree in industrial Psychology. Damalie is also an excellent dancer and actor at Bitone Center.
  4. Sebastian Lutalo: joined Kawanda Senior Secondary School for Advanced Level after successful completion of his senior four. At Kawanda, Sebastian is pursuing a science combination (Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and ICT). His dream is to become a Pharmacist or Engineer.


The troupe’s vision is that by providing artistic training in music and dance, our children’s lives can again become meaningful and productive. We aim at providing the next generation of Ugandans to fully participate and assume leadership roles in their communities

Our efforts in elevating Bitone children’s skills in music and dance practices have continued to yield excellent results. There is no doubt that values of self-esteem, confidence and trustworthiness continue to grow in each child everyday. Through their practices and performances, children lay a solid foundation to their future as they both physically, emotionally and intellectually grow–creating greater horizons and assurance for their future.  

How To Get Involved?

You may get involved and make a difference in the lives of our children by either directly sponsoring a child’s education (fees + scholastic) or by supporting Bitone Children's Center’s Rental fees, Children’s Feeding, Children’s Medical Welfare or Bitone Troupe’s needs (sound equipment and Transport/vehicle).

Bitone is still facing challenges to purchase enough food for its children due to the rising food costs. Every day, Bitone spends about $1.00 on every child’s feeding.

Once again, thank you so much for taking time to read our monthly updates and as always, we look forward to hearing from you.

For any inquiries, you may contact our Executive Director –Branco Sekalegga at E-mail: or by Phone (+256) 772 – 442-274. For donors in United States, you may also reach our Bitone International Programs Coordinator – Sarah Heddon at E-mail: or by Phone (810) 923 – 1879

Many Thanks!

In Peace and Friendship!

Bitone Team.
