A visit to Kinoni Child Development Center (CDC)

Child development centers (CDCs) are projects run by compassion international in partnership with some churches of Uganda to support the neediest of the needy children in different communities by providing them with basic needs. The support is usually in education, meals at home, clothing, among others.

At the invitation by the project Director, Living Music Foundation went to meet and talk to kids about how music can help to transform lives. She thought it right because the kids share similar situations as most of the LMF staff members past and have been transformed through music.

Once in a while, the kids gather here for meals, medical checks, and to receive their support in books, clothes and many other services.

The project usually sets up center days where kids come together and participate in several activities like agriculture, music, sports … and many others.

25th January 2019 was a set apart for music.
