The Salam Music Program is located in the Bidi Bidi refugee settlement, in Northern Uganda, which is the largest refugee camp in Africa. Playing For Change Foundation has partnered with local NGO Sina Loketa to bring access to music and arts education to the youth of the settlement. In 2021, we initiated musical activities for about 60 youth by hiring a music teacher ( vocals, guitar, keyboard ) and a traditional dance teacher.
Sina Loketa is a refugee-led Ugandan NGO dedicated to strengthening the capacities of young people from the refugee and host communities to become self-reliant and develop social enterprises.
Through this partnership, PFCF and Sina Loketa have been implementing a unique music program in the settlement and have been working on other areas such as sustainable agro farming, PSEA training workshops and community events. https://playingforchange.org/salam-music-program/
