Meet the Pioneer behind the Triplets Ghetto Kids! His name: Kavuma Dauda.
He started off as a primary school teacher in Uganda. His father passed on while very young. Gave up hope on ever going back to school. Almost all his friends' fathers would work on big fields to make money to support their families, which was not case his family. Without a father he felt lost, scared and afraid of the future.
Being one of the 30 children his late father had, his widowed mother could not afford to pay his school fees. It took Mr. Kayita Musa, his mentor, a teacher at a nearby school, a few minutes to decide to get him back in school after realizing that he had some soccer skills. The teacher supported him through high school & College.He reignited his hope of a promising future. Through that journey, Mr. Kavuma always told himself, when he graduates, he would find a job & support one street child through school.
About 10 years later, he now has 30 orphaned and vulnerable children under his care. With no funding only 9 of these kids formed a group called the Triplets Ghetto Kids (TGK), have exhibited talent in singing, dancing, and acting. Opening doors to perform in Britain, Kenya, USA, and Australia. They have performed on some of the biggest platforms most artists dream of. Some of the most notable ones are , 2017 BET awards, 2017 Nickelodeon Teen Choice Awards, Late Night show featuring Jimmy Fallon and also 2016 TED Nairobi.
