"IF YOU WANT TO CHANGE THE WORLD,
IT STARTS WITH HOW YOU LOOK AT IT"
- ROLAND PUPUPIN
One of the purposes of the Foundation is to empower and inspire young people to develop their talents by telling stories with a camera.
This is an open talent call to all young people who have a huge passion for telling stories with a camera.
But just can not afford the gear needed.
Send us your best work you made up till now with your motivation and maybe we can help.
The Madudu Foundation was established in November 2018 and named after Esther Madudu.
A midwife working and living in Soroti District eastern Uganda.
From 2012 until 2016 Esther Madudu was the symbol and face of the global AMREF Stand Up for African Mothers campaign that wanted to reduce the maternal mortality in sub-Saharan Africa.
Because photography and films played an essential part in the succes of the campaign the Madudu Foundation was named after her.

My name is John Michael,
I am twelve years old.
I attained this name from my late grandfather.
I stay with my parents and my grandmother. I am in primary five and I go to primary school. My mother gave birth to seven children but one died so we are now six in number and I am the third born. We are born again Christians and we are all Catholics in our family. We are farmers and that is the major source of income in our home. We usually plant ground nuts, cassava, potatoes, maize and vegetables. During dry season my father takes care of people’s cattle for food in exchange. When he is not fine I am the one who takes over that work and I always put on his jacket for grazing so that in case of rain then I will be secure. This is my life.
