We also have a number of partner charities and organizations that we support in Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania and the region that will be showcased at the event.



This event is an important fundraiser for our cancer and HIV/Aids awareness and immunization programs, with proceeds used to improve the lives of youth and young adults in Uganda who are afflicted with preventable and treatable diseases. Learn more about our outreach programs below.
