Supporting the Children of Uganda ~ Fundraising Campaign

Updated: Aug 15, 2023

Introducing the United Freestyle Trampoline Association; a group of young athletes from Uganda who engage, support and mentor the youth of their community. This is the FTA's first fundraising campaign for disadvantaged youth around the world and to expand the benefits of trampoline to new communities.


The FTA has partnered with Akram Kalanzi, a young man dedicated to improving the lives of street kids in his community through dance, song, flipping and soon . . . trampoline activities. All monies raised through this fundraising campaign will go directly into this fund to support sending them a trampoline, offering coaches training and supporting active play and trampoline classes. Akram already has 50 children signed up and ready to go!

"AKRAM IS A TESTIMONY TO OTHER KIDS IN HIS COMMUNITY AS HE HAS OVERCOME THE SAME CHALLENGES THEY FACE - HE BRINGS HOPE TO KIDS WHO ARE STARVING, OPPRESSED AND IN A VERY DIFFICULT SITUATION." ~ Michael Stromme, Uganda Outreach

Their motto says it all:

"We Rise By Lifting Others"


A Community Organization Aimed at Transforming Lives Through Trampoline Games, Dancing & Acrobatics


Meet Akram ~ Mentor, Coach & Fundraising Campaign Leader


"Hello, my name is Akram Kalanzi, I was born and raised in Nkere, Makindye Kampala Uganda, I grew up in a disadvantaged family of a single Parent (mother) of which I later went out to street because of the harsh conditions I was passing through at home at an age of 7 years.


On street I joined other kids whom we used to earn a living through collecting scraps from the places around our community, later in 2013 we started dancing on street were we did street jam everyday for a living! After we met a man who was our friend and he was praying football but he dad broke his leg when praying football! Together with him in his injury of fracture we decided to form a dancing group called Hypers Kids Africa of which we were doing acrobatics and dancing, we started dancing on the streets of Kampala and all over our community, with the grace of God, we were able to get out of the street and made an impact in our lives through our talents and we became one of the biggest and Favour dancing and acrobatics groups in Uganda THE HYPERS KIDS AFRICA.


After getting out of the street I decided to go back to my home community where I was born because a lot of street kids are still there struggling, so I help them dancing and teach them what I also know (skills) which I also hope may Change there lives.


I met Greg Roe and Trish McGeer from the FTA online, and they gave me an idea of starting a federation in addition to what I know and what I do in my community, this is the Trampolines Sports Games that had never existed in my community and my country as well. I hope when I combine trampoline games and dancing together with acrobatics I can create a great performance and something that never existed in the whole world!

Now I have more than 50 kids who are waiting for the trampolines to touch in our community and we want wait for the eagles to fly! "

As we Believe

WE RISE BY LIFTING OTHERS and this is our Motto
