Branco in U.S.

After satisfying all the necessary requirements during the intense nation-wide scholarship competition, Branco was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to pursue his graduate studies at Wesleyan University in CT. Prior to joining his academic institution, Branco had to undergo a pre-academic training at the University of Washington in Seattle where he spent over two months. In the end, he won the best student award in the training among a few others and awarded a certificate of merit. At Wesleyan University, Branco is studying Music Composition and sound/recording technology skills which he hopes will be beneficial to Bitone Center upon his return after the completion of his studies. Despite his physical absence, Branco still renders full time services to the center; ensuring that all programs run smoothly. His counterpart Francis Katimbo who is the current interim administrator is such a devoted and passionate volunteer whose services have already established positive values in kids.

While in US, Branco hopes to spread more awareness about the goals and mission of Bitone Children’s Center. He is still considering more partnerships and collaborations opportunities with individuals and organizations that are interested in sharing the stories, struggles, successes and vision of Bitone Children. Branco has always strongly believed that music and dance can restore peace, international relationships and economic development. “Everyday, as I work with the Bitone children, I am amazed by the power and impact of music and dance in restoration of hope, development of talent and realization of leadership and life skills in the lives of these little children. The urge to excel and to be productive in the children has always left me in wonders and overwhelming excitement” said Branco.

Global Giving Campaign (Give Below)

Thank for your continued support and interest in Bitone success!  Beginning today August 18th, Bitone is participating in GlobalGiving’s Global Open challenge, a fundraising opportunity for nonprofit organizations working around the world.

Bitone Meets the President

Bitone graced the states house in Entebbe on Saturday May 30th, performing for Uganda's own, president Museveni, and Burundian president Pierre Nkunziza. Nkunziza was visiting the pearl for 3 days, and Bitone helped send him off in style.

The performance was short and sweet (maybe 3 minutes) but Museveni spent a considerable amount of time talking with the kids afterwords, asking them each their name, age, and place of birth.

Some of the Bitone youth reflect on the experience in their own words:

I am Afrochian Joanita. On Saturday May 30th 2009 I was the happiest person in the all world becuase it was my first time to go to the state house and what I saw I had never seen it. First of all I shaked presidetns' hands. That made me happy because many people want that but they cannot get it. I thank God for that. It was good and interesting and I never knew we had a beautiful place like that in Uganda. So president I pray to God that he gives you more life forever and ever. For God and my country.

.................................................................................................................

My name is Nansumba Sylvia. On Saturday May 30th 2009 it was an intersting day in my life, reason being, it was my first day to take to handshake with the president of Uganda and go to the state house. I thank God for that. Rich people are there in Uganda but of all God has choosen me, and they had never gone there. It was my first time. Prasie is to be for Mighty Lord and I know that He will take me in other good places like that. Praise Lord.
