Bitone Updates November 2012

Dear friend,


We would like to extend our heartfelt appreciation for the support you have rendered to our project both monetary and technical since we joined GlobalGiving family. Thank you so much for being there we needed you. It is no doubt that your generosity has kept us going and aided us in achieving the many successes we have enjoyed through the GlobalGiving partnership. We are deeply appreciative of the role you have played, and in supporting our children grow productively and impact others’ lives through sharing their stories, talents, and smiles. We are glad that you are part of the reason for these achievements.

Our efforts are continually inspired by everyday success stories of our current 20 children. The Bitone’s holistic approach which unlocks the potential of this generation by providing tools for success in life, creating confident, skillful, visionary leaders re-affirms that children can take charge of their lives if given an opportunity. Values of trustworthiness, sincerity, tolerance, empathy and interpersonal intelligence continue to grow in each child every day.

Located in Lugoba Village Kawempe Division in Kampala District, Bitone Children's Center has established itself as a home for rebuilding voices of hope. By educating community members through our regular music and dance trainings and performances in our local village and across the country, we help raise awareness of children’s vulnerabilities and their rights.

As you are aware, all the funds you donated have been used towards educational costs (school fees, uniforms, and scholastic materials), rental fees, feeding costs, medical expenses and other home related needs.

Currently, the Bitone team would like to announce that we have ended our partnership with GlobalGiving. The board and staff meeting made a resolution this month to stop our project from receiving donations at GlobalGiving due to a change in the organization’s needs and new strategies. It has been a pleasure working with GlobalGiving through which we have had an opportunity to know you and share our story of the disadvantaged Uganda children.

Since we joined GlobalGiving family, Bitone has been able to raise a total of $21,437 donations out of the planned $45,563.  Ultimately, these funds have helped 25 children access education, healthcare and safe place to call home.  With the same donation, we have been able to empower various local communities using the Uganda traditional music and dance and poetry activities. Thank you so much for your kind heart.

For Bitone Center, an international non-profit and community-based organization in Uganda, this means that we have a potential to transform lives as we make a difference in the world. We encourage and invite you to visit our website: for our next program activities and strategies. Here at Bitone Center, together we say “THANK YOU, and THANK YOU”. You will always be part of our life.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns.

Bitone Children’s Center and Troupe is a charitable organization whose mission is to restore the hopes and enhance the quality of life of disadvantaged Ugandan children who have been traumatized by the death of their parent(s), loss of home, war, disease and economic hardship.  Bitone Children’s Center and Troupe is located in Kawempe Lugoba village, Uganda.  Children at Bitone Center participate in Bitone Troupe, which has gained both Ugandan and international recognition for raising awareness of social issues through musical and artistic performance.
