Story

Hi thank you for taking the time to come on the page,
I'm Umar founder of African Street kids Dreams
I was abandoned by my parents at a tender age and started to live with my grandpa.
When I got 30,000UGX ( £1 ), I boarded a truck and went to Kampala to look for a job
In Kampala,life was difficult. Even though my parents lived around,I couldn't look for them because I was seen as case to them.So I started living on the streets.
I started to go at school when I was 13 years and paid for it all myself.
I often got to school late because I had to first look for money before class. ( I sold scrap metal)
I was always asking God, 'please make me a musician or footballer. But mostly I loved music so I started recording my music in 2010 when I was 15yrs old.
At age 19, I managed to get small room in Kampala( to rent).

In Uganda there is more than 2.5 millions of street children.
One day I found 4 little children on the streets and I decided to keep them with me. I've been with them for 4 years now helping them with school fees, food, clothes, medical care etc
also i have to buy monthly food for other 30 street kids but unfortunately their are still sleeping on streets And that is why I want to build for them a house, and small poultry farm.
I want to help these street children to have a better life.I feel that this is possible with the help of people who have big hearts and also realise that every child does deserve to have a chance at life.
I also plan to build an orphanage school and to start different projects for orphanage kids to learn like
-Farming
-Rearing
-Singing
-Dancing
- Art and Designing
- Computer etc.
I wish to purchase this piece of land (50 x 50) to take care of all the orphanage activities.the land will cost us 10,000,000UGX (£2,000) and construction material for the house will cost at least 20,000,000UGX (£4,000)
The donations will go directly to Africa street kids Dreams
Please give what ever you can to help support this beautiful children.
