Hello jugglers and fans of juggling around the world!

I hope you're having fun learning and sharing tricks and also connecting with mates around the world. I'm hereby sharing with you the young, talented kids in my Ugandan community who do juggling.

In a short period of time, and with inadequate resources (juggling props ie diabolo, clubs, balls and many others) we have achieved a number of great successes in attracting youths to the art of juggling, helping steer many kids away from criminal activities, alcohol, drugs, and gangs in the slums of Katwe, Kosovo, Bulenga, Bwaise and other areas near Kampala.

In the tough times of Covid 19 many of us learned that we all need each other, no matter the size, color and age. We started juggling practices as we had nothing to do due to the lockdown but this was personal training because we were not allowed to gather together in one place. When the situation was coming to an end, we gathered together and started sharing skills of juggling based off of YouTube and instagram videos we were watching during personal training sessions.

More kids and youths got interested and we decided to keep the spirit burning, we shared our experiences with other people on various platforms who have helped us become who we are now by showing us more skills, supporting us monetarily or with props. As this moment, we have managed to take 150 kids to school and to produce the next generation of performers!

We are here reaching out in the hope that you can help us continue our voluntary efforts to make a bigger impact on the lives of kids, youths and their families through juggling. We will be grateful with anything that you are able to contribute to our campaign by either monetary donation or props. Remember that the Bible says “whoever helps the poor, lends to God” Thank you so much for sharing the little you have with us, mostly your time to read our story. May you be rewarded abundantly!

Yours sincerely,
Najib Mugwanya
