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.

Guatemala Project

 —  —

Guatemala City

Our initial Central American trip is to Guatemala. We are so excited to meet our local community partners in person, start teaching ukuleles, and connect over music. We'll be delivering books and medical supplies as well! Want to know more? Use our contact page to reach out with questions.

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.
