I’ve written before about Abramz, a Ugandan hiphop artist and community activist whose work with disadvantaged children and youth throughout Uganda makes me squeal like the little, breakdancing-wannabe I am.

This weekend his Breakdance Project Uganda is presenting HIPHOP FOR A CAUSE on Sunday, May 6th at the Sharing Youth Centre, Nsambya. The festival aims to show people the positive role that hiphop plays in Ugandan societies and to encourage youth and children to participate in community work. It will feature breakdancers and hiphop artists, most of whom are youth and disadvantaged children, from Gulu (H.E.A.L.S), Kampala & andother areas of Uganda.
