Holy Keane Amooti one of Uganda’s most popular and award-winning artiste grow up a not-so-favorable circumstance. Born as a result of a relation between a university student for a father and young mother, it was not easy at all. Worse still, he lost both parents to HIV/AIDS. He was still headed for more trouble when his grandmother who had taken over from his departed parents also passed on.
These and many such circumstances must be why Holy Keane Amooti is behind what we have discovered is a foundation to “implementing an HIV/AIDS awareness/campaign programme in Kasese suburbs starting January 2016.The goal of this charity organisation is to educate, encourage and implement HIV alleviation activities such as encouraging abstinence, talents promotion, sports participation, ICT exposure to the vulnerable interest groups especially the children and teenagers which will in the long run reduce on HIV prevalence rates in the community.”
Keane Amooti Foundation (KAF) according to the website (keaneamootifoundation.org), is a group of individuals and organisations, who have been directly or indirectly affected by HIV, and have concern for children with the aim of making HIV and its effects a thing of the past.
If you ask us, this a step in the right direction. Through Keane Amooti Foundation, Holy Keane Amooti and team will be involved in Awareness campaigns, Youth Empowerment: Talents through music, sports, crafts, Poverty Alleviation programs and ICT exposure, and other activities. The Jah Jehovah hit singer is definitely one who comes across as humble and focused on ministering to Uganda youth. He has done this during his days at Makerere University when he pursued a Bachelor’s degree in Music Dance and Drama, worked with Prime Time – a youth transformational weekly event, and as a singer who has gained popularity.
From us to you, you might want to tag along as we await the great things this foundation will achieve.
