Tackling refugee problems through music

I Can South Sudan (ICSS), brought together a group of talented youngsters including Fresh Kid and Leyna K to team up with Refugee Children from the Bidibidi Refugee Settlement to record a song titled ‘Tuko Pamoja’.

Translated as ‘We are one’, the song aims at promoting humanity and providing a platform for vulnerable children to directly have a say about their plight and seek support towards their education, development, protection, and well-being.

Through ‘Tuko Pamoja’, the kids get to put their talent to use and express themselves while passing on key messages.

Through the song, the children want all refugees to live in more equal, peaceful, and gender-just societies based on inclusive human rights and accounting institutions.

They are calling upon the world to increase funding to Uganda as it committed to the Global Compact for Refugees to ease the pressures on host countries.

Calling for a fair share of funding to be directed to the plight of children in Uganda to reduce school dropouts, child marriage, child pregnancy, street children, and neglect of children with disability.

And then calling on host districts to secure refugee farmlands for cultivation to ward off decreasing food rations from the UN.

I Can South Sudan is a multi-sectoral Non-Governmental Organization devoted to advancing the well-being of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), Returnees, and Refugees, with a special focus on vulnerable children and women.
