Do you want​​​​​
  • An adventure?

  • A grass roots experience?

humanitarian, musical
and cultural exchange
tours in Africa.
 
Experience a personal journey of self-discovery, self-awareness and realizing our role in the bigger picture.
 
Authentic explorers set off for a two-week life changing experience to work alongside The African Children's Choir in the slums of Uganda
 
KwaYa Australia’s altruistic, musical and cultural exchange tours afford big-hearted adventurers opportunities to not only give back in a tangible and meaningful way, but a chance to enjoy the Ugandan people and their culture at a grass roots level.​​

Based on the popularity of our cultural exchange tours over the past four years, it seems Kwaya is supplying the soothing scratch for many of the frantic itches being felt by disgruntled Australians yearning for more.


Why?
  • To live the message of joy and hope for Uganda's children​.
  • To engage in a unique and life-changing immersion in a grass-roots cultural and musical exchange
  • To raise funds for ground-breaking and innovative self sustainability projects.

How?
  • KwaYa travellers help change the lives of those less fortunate with funds raised in their local communities before they leave for Uganda. 
  • We deliver educational material and financial donations to schools and provide gifts of basic essentials to local orphanages.  
  • We  conduct cross cultural workshops at local schools. Each participant is encouraged to tap into their artistic skills (obvious or latent) to be a part of fun, informative and uniquely Australian workshops for the children in Uganda’s slums and remote villages. 
  • We engage in renovation projects in the schools in the slums of Kampala.
MUSIC
KwaYa travellers can join the KwaYa choir made up of singers from Australia plus talented young African university students who grew up in the African Children's choir. ​​​

They will perform with the Young Africans for a number of audiences around Kampala culminating in FREE concerts for the disadvantaged. 

kwaYa’s Uganda project will demonstrate, yet again, the powerful role music can play in changing the lives and fortunes of individuals; and in building stronger communities through a shared love of music.

“I thought I was going to make a difference; however I returned having had that 'difference' made to me.
Two weeks of travel, culture, singing, dancing, giving, receiving, friends, family, community! Really, what else is life about!"
Renee Wilson 
KwaYa #2 (2012)

The ACC Music for Life Outreach Program involves Kwaya travellers visiting and working in the slums and remote villages of Uganda where many of the choir children were born and raised.
