MindLeaps

Using dance to help vulnerable children and youth in Uganda

Through the power of dance, young people succeed in school, enter the workplace, and leap forward in life. MindLeaps uses dance to teach children in Rwamwanja Refugee Settlement the necessary skills to lift themselves out of poverty.

The lessons and skills learned provide youth with newfound purpose and perspectives in life. The standardized curriculum gives hope, patience, and perseverance to do well in school. Child development progress is monitored using Tracker, MindLeaps' data-driven software application and analytics system.
