Sylvia Mbabazi

Hello, my name is Sylvia Mbabazi and I would like to tell you a bit more about the UP4S foundation

I grew up myself in Uganda and came to live in the Netherlands in 1997. Together with some volunteers, we decided to give the underprivileged children in Bukomansimbi and surroundings a chance for a good education. Thus, in 2003 the UP4S foundation ('up for us', which means 'stand up for us') was born. That is what the UP4S foundation does: stand up for underprivileged children in Uganda South Soudan. We would love if you want to help us as well. This could be in the form of a donation trough this website. Or do you feel like helping out as a volunteer?
If you would like to have more information, please send an email to info@up4s.nl or call +31 6 307 72 723.

Kind regards, Sylvia Mbabazi

Working together for a hopeful future for children in Uganda

The UP4S Foundation helps underprivileged children in Uganda. This significantly increases the chances of a good future for these children. UP4S has a primary and a secondary school in the village of Bukomansimbi, where many of the children come from. The UP4S Foundation was founded in 2003 by Sylvia Mbabazi.

The UP4S children's choir/dance group again to the Netherlands

In May, June and July 2024

This Ugandan children's choir/dance group consists of underprivileged children and is affiliated with the Up4s foundation (www.up4s.nl). Our wish is to bring your primary school children into contact with our African culture through singing, dancing, African games, playing djembe and sharing stories. We visited a number of schools together with part of the choir to give a taster. There was great enthusiasm to welcome us again in 2024. We have started planning for this year. Would you like to choose a date in May, June or July 2024 when we can come to your school (again) to provide an unforgettable day?

Visit Up4S Choir to the Netherlands!

September 2023

From May 2023 to mid-July 2023, our children's choir from Uganda traveled all the way to the Netherlands to raise money for their schools and classmates in Bukomansimbi, Uganda. They have done this by performing throughout the country, giving workshops and selling selfmade 'crafts'. The children's choir comes to the Netherlands at the same time every year, as a tradition. Therefore, for many schools it was not the first time to receive a Ugandan visit.
One of the many places visited was Eerbeek, specifically the Children's Clothing Fair Foundation (SKKB). “Yesterday it finally happened! After all these years we were allowed to enjoy the beautiful djembe, singing and dancing of Up4s again. We are so happy that they came to show us and feel how much energy and strength there is in the youth of Uganda. This is what we do it for!” is written on their website as a result of our visit.
We would like to thank all donors and sponsors, including the Children's Clothing Fair Foundation (SKKB), for their warm welcome and support for the project.
