To all of you who supported us during the Global Giving Project Challenge, thank you so much and congratulations again. Bitone is now a member of Global Giving community! We sincerely appreciate and value your contribution so highly!

With this momentum, the center is energized to continue with its rehabilitation programs to the children. We are very hopeful that our goal will be achieved. The kids are very excited to continue sharing their stories, struggles, challenges, successes, talents, future dreams and desire for peace to all of you.

Art Craft: We are very glad to inform you that Bitone Children finalized their two-month planned project of making and designing special beaded necklaces and ear rings and other jewelry made from local materials. The project is part of the on-going skill acquisition training and sharing. As part of awareness, the kids hope to showcase these items both at the center and possibly elsewhere. They also hope to sell them out and raise some money for their survival. You may also support them by buying some of their jewelry. Contact:

As Bitone Center, we are committed to continue using art as a tool to foster a sense of belongingness and tolerance for peace –productivity and sustainability.

Academics: “I thank everyone who has contributed to my studies. I hope I will also have a chance to continue studying next year. My dream is to become a medical doctor and a musician…” said Aisha Nabitosi, S.4. On the 15th October, three Bitone children –Mary, Damalie and Aisha started sitting for their Ugandan National Examinations (UNEB) which will mark the end of the O-Level (Ordinary Level, Senior 4) leading them to Advanced Level. Other candidates (Junior and Steven) will be doing their Uganda Primary Leaving Examinations (P.L.E) on 3rd up to 6th November, 2009. Meanwhile, Elizabeth will be sitting for her senior six examinations starting on the 6th November, 2009. We wish them success!!
