Pastor Paul Bulenzi, founder of Beam of Hope For The Disadvantaged (BEHOD), an NGO based in the Jinja district of Uganda, is committed to elevating the living conditions for HIV/AIDS disabled orphans through the efforts of his vocational training center. The ICT center provides computer and job skills to disabled HIV/AIDS youth, and now Punchbowl Productions, founded in 2004 by visionaries,Wolf Rudiger, Camille Eden, Andrea Lamm, as well as its newest member, Leslie Safley have joined forces with BEHOD to realize the company’s mission of making a valuable contribution to disabled children in remote areas of world needing to learn music appreciation. The company is dedicated to creating educational DVD’s focused on music education and charitable endeavors.
Their Funky Monkey presents Music Time DVD offers:
• Vibrant musical compositions to contribute to children’s growth, development, and joy
• Suitable for organizations like BEHOD in Uganda that strive to focus on the needs of the disabled
• Overall, music has the power to greatly enhance the learning process and offers universal appeal across cultures
Pastor Paul contacted me last week to let me know the DVD collection had arrived and will be added to the library of materials. Punchbowl Productions has also been helpful in sharing resources concerning how BEHOD may get access to educational software that is affordable, or free of charge. Right now, in order for the operations at BEHOD to run smoothly, obtaining educational software has become an urgent need. Fortunately, a college in the Netherlands donated several computers, thereby providing the program with much needed equipment. With November heralding "Be Thankful" month, I'm grateful for all the generous persons that have contributed their time and energy to respond to Pastor Paul's meritorious efforts in Jinja, Uganda.
