Ever heard about the Breakdance Project Uganda? I stumbled upon it via the documentary “BOUNCING CATS” several months ago and since then I’ve been following the project on Facebook. Still, I am deeply impressed by this project and I feel the need to share with you “The Power of Art” and some good music!
Breakdance Project Uganda (BPU) started in February 2006 out of the belief that Hip Hop can be used as a tool to engage and empower disadvantaged youth in Kampala and other areas of Uganda. It’s mission is to engage young people in elements of the hip hop culture to build leadership skills and promote social responsibility. The Project has attracted people from every walk of life and acts as a catalyst for building mutually beneficial relationships between people of different social status across Uganda and the rest of the world. It serves to teach people breakdancing and how to pass on those skills to others, as well as promoting leadership skills, social responsibility and positive change to members and local communities. – www.bouncingcats.com
