After living as an orphan for years and surviving by creating and selling beautiful paintings
to tourists visiting then Nile River in Uganda, Lubaale Nabiru (Dickson) knew he had the ability,
drive, talent and heart to create change and bring hope to his village in Uganda.
In 2013, at the age of 20, Dickson launched Arise Talents Uganda, a registered
Community Based Organization (CBA) in his village of Mafubira, outside of Jinja, Uganda.
Currently, within the Arise Talents' home Dickson lovingly restored and furnished, five orphan children live and go to school daily. Another twenty vulnerable or orphaned children visit on an ongoing basis.
All are taught art, music and dance as well as life skills and English.
In this environment all the children are well loved and fed, providing a foundation
of self-worth, hope, aspiration and talents to help them become self-sufficient.
When you buy one of these beautiful paintings created by Dickson,
you provide much-needed income to help complete the ongoing mission Arise Talents.
