WHO ARE WE?

Destreet Art Foundation is a Non Profitable and Non Political Project aimed at empowering youth (ghetto youth and kids) from the age of 6 years onwards. Building skills in various forms of art, including visual arts, music, dance, drama, poetry, videography, and photography, youth gain life skills such as increased self esteem, leadership, entrepreneurship and literacy.
A fun and creative learning environment is formed through participation in sports and games. 
An important and valued aspect of Destreet Art Foundation is the volunteers. We are grateful for volunteers from all over the world who come to work with disadvantaged children and youth in Uganda. Their support for this movement allows children to experience various art forms and understand the global importance of art. 


Currently, Destreet Art holds regular mobile art classes for children aged 9 to 14 years. Also partnering with different NGOs in Kampala and Jinja, the team goes to communities to engage in outreach work. We now have FREE Art Classes at our NEW Destreet Art Studio in Kamwokya, Kampala.

WHY ART?

Many African youth are discouraged to pursue their love of the arts as they are led to believe they cannot earn a living in this way. At Destreet Art Foundation, we encourage using artistic talent and passion to create products that can be sold in both local and international markets.

The photo above shows art works sold by Destreet Art and Sadati in the art market at the This is Uganda festival. The money raised helped initiative several community art outreach workshops.
