How to Break Down Stereotypes

“No one is born hating another person” – Nelson Mandela

No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin or his background or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite. ” -Nelson Mandela

We are a not-for-profit organization that works with schools and organizations here in Canada and in Uganda, for now, to help build a world of compassion, kindness and human rights for all. Our mission is to help break down the negative gender, cultural and racial stereotypes that hold us all back.

Virtual QiGong workshop at our UKC Centre of Art and Technology with Jacqueline Chan of Pureland QiGong, Toronto, Canada

Through cultural exchanges of art and technology, our kids are given the opportunity to share personal stories and to work on joint projects that encourage collaboration and open dialogue. We educate and empower our kids beyond text books and school walls; crossing all cultural and economic borders for fun. Not just a charitable organization; we run our centre as a business and chip away the negative effects of colonialism at a psychological level. 

Youth Art Movement Uganda is just one of our amazing partners that not only works with us but generously supports and mentors our kids.

Uganda kids Canada is a Kids Canada initiative. Our UKC Centre of Art and Technology is based in kirerangalo, a village just 3k away from Bombo Town and 37km North of Kampala, Uganda.

As an educational centre in Uganda that attracts students and professionals alike we are quickly becoming known as a centre of innovation.

Kids are often seen as vulnerable and dependent but we see them as they are; they inspire, play and work hard at everything that is thrown their way.

Thank you Al-Karim Wissanji for your generous support in both mentoring and donations. Our new furniture is beautiful!
