About similar Ground
Similar Ground is a Child and youth centred not-for-profit organization created and led by young refugees, Northern Uganda. We believe young people can support, protect, and inspire their own communities. We work with South Sudanese refugee children and youth and also children and young people from the Ugandan host community.
Similar Ground uses music, art and dance to help children and youth learn, express themselves and build confidence. We also provide digital training to youth and accompany them to achieve better livelihoods through income-generating activities. We also organise our initiatives to support education and career development for young women and girls.
Changing Lives through Music and Play
We believe that music enables children and youth to flourish, developing an increased sense of self-worth, confidence, friendships and raised aspirations.. Our work brings together young people of all ages, creating a strong community spirit and a deep sense of pride through musical achievement.
Inspiring stories of hope
