Uganda is known as a terrible place to live from the outside. From the inside, well, it’s still pretty bad. But the kids growing up there don’t see it that way. It’s their home, and they have an overwhelming desire to help. So, when they discovered breakdancing, they learned how to channel their passion into a more productive manner. They’re bringing attention to themselves and their situation, and helping to inspire all those around them. Interestingly, in our culture, we generally make fun of breakdancing these days. Sort of puts a whole new spin on just what exactly can influence a group of people, doesn’t it?
