MONEY MAKES MONEY - It's common knowledge that all around the world the rich get richer every day, while the poor get poorer. Bulambuli, eastern Uganda, is no exception. That's why we decided to fake it until we finally make it. With your donations, we can change the narrative and stop faking it. The music video was directed by Isaac Nabwana and our friends at Wakaliwood, Uganda.

THE SONG. The hit you cannot stop singing was made for the campaign by amazing Ugandan artists. Produced by Baru , musically directed by Bana Mutibwa and performed by Byg Ben Sukuya, Mc Yallah and Jora Mc. Please check out their music and listen to the extended version of the Money Makes Money song here. Thank you all!

About the charity

Communities for Development (CfD) was born with a clear objective, to help improve the lives of some of the poorest people in rural Uganda. Our approach includes the delivery of business and skills training and the creation of microfinance savings groups to help communities self-develop. We then assist these community members to start up their own income generating activities, to allow families to meet their basic everyday needs and further improve their long term quality of life. Communities for Development firmly believes that the community must be at the heart of their own development and this philosophy is ingrained into everything we do.
