About Living Music Foundation
Living Music Foundation (LMF) was established as a community based organization to provide music lessons and trainings to the people of Mbarara, Uganda and the surrounding towns and villages. Driven by their passion and love for music, the Living Music Foundation team is made up of musicians dedicated to changing lives through music.
The Living Music Foundation recognized that there was a lack of access to music lessons, equipment, and trainers, despite the talent and drive of local communities in Uganda to learn music. LMF hopes to foster the development of musical talent in local communities by providing lessons taught by professional trainers and the space and equipment required for effective music lessons. However, LMF isn’t all about learning music, their mission extends to the impact music can have on individuals and communities as a whole.
LMF focused on providing lessons and trainings for youth who would otherwise not have the opportunity to learn music and who lack access to training and equipment.
Projects We Support
The GoAbroad Foundation partnered with the Living Music Foundation in early 2018 through GoAbroad.com’s new Affinity Mentorship Program to help develop their new music volunteer program, after meeting the founding members during our East Africa trip in October 2017. To date, the GoAbroad Foundation has provided essential financial support and logistical knowledge to help Living Music Foundation establish themselves as a legitimate community organization, expand the scope of their lessons, and purchase necessary musical instruments and materials.
In November 2018, the GoAbroad Foundation fundraised to support Living Music Foundation’s next phase of organizational development, which was to purchase a vehicle to transport volunteers and, more importantly, musical instruments to numerous communities. In 2019, our focus will be raising funds for their youth music lessons, while also supporting their community trainings and overall program development.
