UKE IT FORWARD
for

In India an estimated 500,000 minor girls


have been forced into the commercial sex trade.
Each year, Survivor Girl Ukulele Band (SGUB) brings
20-30 ukuleles and strings - donated by Kala Brand Music
Company, Koaloha Ukuleles, and Worth Strings - to India
and works in a shelter home for rescued girls.

SURVIVOR GIRL
UKULELE BAND

Most of these girls have very little education, so in learning


how to play the ukulele, they also LEARN HOW TO LEARN.
They learn how to playsongs they know, from
Twinkle Twinkle Little Star to their favorite Bollywood hits.
Then they start to find their own voice through
writing songs and creating the soundtrack
of their own life story.
SGUB also performs onstage at concerts and festivals

in Kolkata. The practice, the preparation, and the


performances bring a huge sense of achievement
and empowerment. They LOVE being part of THE BAND.
