Children from the Music for Life Centre in Mulago in Kenya pose with their new back-packs.

Children from the Mulago Music For Life Center in Uganda, pose proudly with their new back packs for carrying their school books. For them, it’s a huge leap forward, since up until now, most had to use flimsy paper bags to try to store and carry their books.

Thrilled to have a proper ‘carrier’ for their school books.

These children recognize that ‘education’ can be a ticket to freedom from poverty and a door opener to a life where their potential can be fully developed. Their school books, therefore, are precious to them and they are delighted to have this means to keep them protected and organized. Music For Life staff in Uganda are grateful to World Vision and Mac Make-up, for donating the packs.
