World Ukulele Project

Once, the majestic Hawaiian Queen Lili'uokalani stated that the Ukulele was the "Gift that Came Here."  What an inspiring thought!  This instrument greatly enriched the lives of the Hawaiian people for generations.  

We are delighted to share our deep love of music with developing countries through the gift of donated ukuleles. Our mission is to teach the basics of how to play these instruments as we travel, partnering with local communities and schools around the world. Join with us to provide and deliver ukuleles, literature, and medical supplies.    

World Ukulele Project Inc. is a nonprofit that is registered with the State of Idaho.

Why Ukes?

They are easy to learn and fun to play!

Our music studio has had great success with teaching students of all ages how to play Ukuleles.  We have found it is the most approachable instrument for a group setting.  We have hosted music camps, taught community members at our local libraries, and students from a homeschool co-op.  Now we hope to teach this great instrument in developing countries through this music project.

We need 15 Ukuleles for each humanitarian trip to donate to the school.  You can help purchase an  instrument with just a $60 donation.  Please consider sponsering a student today.

Our Spanish/Engish Story Book

This is a delightful story about a panda bear who learns to play the ukulele. His friend, who is a red panda, teaches him patiently. This story is written in a English/Spanish edition to support the World Ukulele Project. This book is a great story about how we can share our love of music with friends, as well as a great way to practice language skills.

Each ukulele kit we donate in our partnering schools includes a copy of this beautiful story book.  When you purchase a copy of your own, all the proceeds go to our non-profit.
