You may have heard of the Triplets Foundation, aka the Ghetto Kids. The popular dance group from Uganda made waves two years ago after their performance in Eddy Kenzo's "Sitya Loss" viral music video.
According to a 2014 BBC report, the group trains every day, and is composed mainly of kids living in the slums of the Uganda capital of Kampala — perhaps it's this fact that inspired the name "Ghetto Kids."
The founder and leader of the group is math teacher Dauda Kavuma, who set up the collective to help underprivileged children in the community. Kavuma told BBC he once lived on the streets himself and that he felt a need to do something to help these kids.
"I came up with the idea that as we dance, and we get some money, and it will pay for school, 'cuz that is how I was inspired to open up that group," Kavuma explains.
Through dance, the kids are not only able to stay away from violence on the streets, but they are able to thrive. They have more than 16,000 fans on their Facebook page and even danced for the king of Buganda. Their YouTube page invites viewers to "meet the children dancing their way from Uganda's slums to the stage."
Their latest video is particularly fun to watch for people all over the world, as it is set to Justin Bieber's hit song "Sorry." In the video description, it says the song is one of the Ghetto Kids' favorites.
