The mission of The Bitone Children's Home/Troupe is to restore the lives and hopes of Ugandan children between 8 and 18 years old who have lost their parents or homes due to the various hardships faced in Uganda. The program was founded in 2004 by Branco Sekalegga, and Hassan Kayemba with the vision of "Restoring Hope by Nurturing the Body and Spirit." Bitone youth are provided with basic food and shelter, a nurturing environment, an academic education, and counseling. Through learning traditional African music, dance, folklore and theater, the children build self-esteem, become self-reliant and contribute to creating a peaceful future for the next generations of Ugandans and others worldwide. Bitone operates from a rented home that can accommodate up to 25 children in the Lugoba village, located in the Kawempe division of Kampala, Uganda 6 kilometers from Kampala's city center.
