Duncan Africa

In 2007 the Suubi Trade School was birthed in a dusty, impoverished village in Uganda, East Africa. The focus of this school was to teach young people to build world class acoustic guitars and connect these young apprentices to an overseas market. In the future these students will operate their own guitar manufacturing plant. One fine instrument at a time, these young people are defying the odds stacked against them and delivering guitars that inspire.
