The Big Give Christmas Challenge 2017: Help Transform A Child's Life This Christmas

This year, Brass for Africa is taking part in the Big Give Christmas Challenge, the UK’s biggest online match funding campaign. We’re hoping to raise vital funds for one of our most important projects ‘The Children Of Kampiringisa’.   

The project has been championed by the Reed Foundation and any donations we receive during the week of the Christmas Challenge
(28th Nov - 5th December) will be matched by them, meaning your donation will be doubled.

Do you belong to a musical community? Do you play in a band, orchestra or other ensemble? Does your school have a music department? If so what could be more fitting than holding a fund raising concert to support music opportunities for 'The Children of Kampiringisa'.

THE NEED

Kampiringisa is Uganda’s only juvenile rehabilitation facility, housing vulnerable street children alongside youth “at conflict with the law”. The children of Kampiringisa face a number of challenges that can have a significant impact on their well-being, development, and future. Living conditions are very poor and when children arrive at Kampiringisa they have lost trust, they have lost love. There is an urgent need to rehabilitate these children and lead an effort to engage them back into society. It is the government’s responsibility to care for and protect these children and they have given their full support for Brass for Africa to assist in improving the quality of life within the Centre.
