Safer housing


"Urban Project is a registered charity (No. 80611 9350 RR0001) dedicated to promoting employment, education and safer living opportunities for disadvantaged youth in urban locations throughout the world.

"As a vehicle for redistributing funds, our goal is to engage youth in artistic projects that fit with their current interests and passions.

"All funds raised are used to support a youth-focused project in a specific urban location.

"In 2008 we traveled to Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, to conduct a music and filmmaking project with a group of young men who live and work on the streets. We returned in 2009 to follow up with these youth and pay for another year of housing and school fees."
