REORGANIZATION OF THE ROYAL DANCE TROUPE

The focus of this project is to equip the Royal Music and Dance Troupe, and the kingdom's Ritual Masters with instruments, traditional costumes, and transport. The project will also help the members of the Troupe start small scale, income-generating projects to help provide for the financial needs of their families.

The Troupe and Ritual Masters are the vanguard of promoting, fostering and conserving the living culture of the batooro people, through daily practices, performance and training of traditonal artists; thereby strenghtening the cultural identity of the tribe. The Troupe and Ritual Masters are already in existence but are falling into disarray due to the prevailing hostile economic conditons under which they have volunteered to operate.

Emergency financial assistance is needed to envigorate their revival and make them effective. Income-generating projects in which the Foundation hopes to get them involved include mushroom farming, bee keeping, piggery, fish farming, poultry farming, carpentry and joinery, and transportation.  Once again, our appeal for financial assistance goes out to all our friends and well-wishers.
