We are launching The Black Culture Academy in Kampala, Uganda! This partnership with local AfroBeats Dance Group, ”SuperBrotherz” will be a fellowship for youth to learn business development, digital marketing and community engagement skills.
Our initial cohort of 11 fellows will be compensated for setting up and running their own fresh produce market, apparel shop and development center.
Please consider sending donations via:
Cash App @ $blackcultureweekly or
$53 rents space in the local market for our Fellows to sell produce for a month
$67 can feed our 11 fellows for a week
$80 helps us buy educational tools to teach our curriculum (per fellow)
Our Fellows will be able to feed themselves, buy out local farmers and sell fresh produce in their community with YOUR HELP!
Mulira Martin is an 18 year old Ugandan dancer born in Jinja, a small town far from the capital of Kampala. Mulira was born to a single mother, Nabirye Harriet who died from AIDS when Mulira was just 7-years old. Due to the absence of his father, Mulira was placed in the custody of his mother’s friend Mary, who looked after him. He recalls being disconnected from his family and dealing with friction from his adoptive mother.
Simon has been living on the streets of Kampala but is now staying with Mulira.
Please help Black Culture Weekly ensure he has a roof over his head and food in his belly.
