The mission of Bitone Children’s Center and Troupe is to restore the hopes and enhance the quality of life of disadvantaged Ugandan children and youth who are traumatized by the death of their parent(s), loss of home, war, disease, or economic hardship.
Our vision is that by providing basic food and shelter, a nurturing environment, an academic education, with training in traditional Ugandan dance, music, and theater, our children’s lives can again become meaningful and joyful.
The Bitone team is proud and honored to announce that we have become a part of One World Children’s Fund! OWCF is a global non-profit that is committed to improving the lives of children around the world who are affected by poverty and lack the most basic necessities. Bitone was recently approved as a partner organization and looks forward to rich collaboration with an organization that furthers our mission.
Since its inception in 2000, OWCF have helped more than 50,000 children in 18 countries access education, health care and safe place to call home. They have empowered community partners to raise more than $3.5 million dollars all of which directly benefits community-based organizations on the ground.
For Bitone Center, an international non-profit and community based organization in Uganda, this means that we can fundraise, collect donations and apply for U.S. based grants through One World Children’s Fund as a fiscal sponsor. Bitone will receive 100% of the funds raised through the partnership and will benefit from OWCF’s global network of fundraisers and philanthropists.
