Delight Youth Brass Bandis a social community project that was started with the aim of helping disadvantaged and the at-risk youth and children whose life and future seem to be losing hope and meaning. To rebuild and restore them for a better life, and also  to reconcile  street children  with their families, because as an organisation  we  believe in a second chance. All this is done through identifying  different talents in music, art and crafts, vocational skills, film acting, agriculture and also engaging them in guidance and counselling.

In Uganda life for youth means a daily struggle. They experience drug abuse, exploitation through child labour, physical and emotional abuse, drop out of schools, early marriages, disease to mention but a few. Due to this, the founders of Delight Youth Brass band thought that the coming together of youths in the community through music, art and crafts, vocational skills, agriculture, family reconciliation will solve the above challenges.The organisation started with 35 members (both boys and girls) and 20 scrap instruments which were donated by a private organisation which had ceased business. The organisation now has 80 beneficiaries aged 4-25 years.
