My name is Nicholas Sentongo and I am a director at a company called Fixnrev Mechanics in Uganda. Having lived in Uganda for a year and a half, I travelled the country mainly for work but have really seen the suffering of people, especially young teenagers and children.
I felt I had the opportunity to give back. There are several ways in which we as a company are supporting local charities and the main charity we support is an orphanage called “oasis of life” based in Kampala, Uganda (please see our charity page on our company website.
I got the inspiration to build a music school
to help provide music skills that will empower children and those less privileged thereby taking them out of poverty. I however didn’t have all the funding to acquire music instruments and to complete the construction works.
I then reached out to several organisations, music schools to help donate any music instruments, furniture etc.
We are pleased to say that planet drum came through to our support. They provided a variety of music equipment like drum sets, music speakers, guitars, sound proofing equipment, cabling and a lot more other music equipment.
We can’t thank them enough for their generosity. This will go a long way in helping us achieve that dream of facilitating the music school and we are so grateful for their support.
