Helping Br. Mark & the Kiseminti Needy Children Organization

The Opportunity

Br. Mark is the Founder and Director of Kiseminti Needy Children and Sosolya Undugu Dance Academy. His mission is to help vulnerable youth break the cycle of poverty and let them bloom. The organization provides educational scholarships as well as enrichment activities including traditional African music, dance and drama. The academy now consists of 309 students of which 121 children (aged 5 – 18) and 188 youth (aged 18-26). Br. Mark’s biggest concern is providing food for all these youth. He needs help to expand his small farm and establish a pig and chicken farm. Help these youth continue to receive the support needed to thrive!

Watch what these youth can do!

The Plan

Our grant will:

  • Purchase 300 chickens so children have access to eggs
  • Provide 20 pigs to start a pig farm so children have access to protein
  • Double the size of their farm

The Reason

Every day, Br. Mark teaches youth to dream and believe in themselves. He wants them to know that they are not defined by the circumstances in which they were born. He sees their potential and helps each of them discover their talents through the arts. Help Br. Mark continue his mission to ensure that these children have what they need and continue to live, learn, dance, play, and dream.
