Sound Foundation is a charity whose vision is to use music as a tool for empowerment. Through training teachers to provide music education classes in schools, and supporting artists to pursue a career in music-related activities, SF aims to build community cohesion in areas of socio-economic deprivation.

Since 2011 they have been delivering music education classes in schools in Kampala, Uganda, reaching a total of around 500 students. In these practical sessions they introduce children to a range of music genres, and teach them to play traditional instruments from the region. SF delivers regular training and mentoring to its teachers, all of who are Ugandan.

Their industry work focuses on creating opportunities for artists from the ground up. SF promotes the artists music locally, work with them on recordings, and provide support in entrepreneurial activity, such as writing proposals and drawing up budgets. In London, Sound Foundation runs regular live music nights with london-based international artists. These have included Sudanese chanteuse Amira Kheir and KALEIDA and Griot musician and khora player Jally Kebba Susso.
