Philanthropist Bob Pellissier Funds a “Music Classroom” in Kyarumba, Uganda

Posted: Wed, October 07, 2015 | By: Past Projects

Bob Pellissier, CEO of RKI Instruments in Union City, California, is funding a music class in Kyarumba, Uganda.

He has purchased an electric piano for the students of Vision Care Primary School, and he is paying for a room that the piano will be placed in. The instrument will also be shared with the greater community of Kyarumba.

Bob Pellissier has made many contributions to poverty-stricken residents in Western Uganda in the last year.

He launched two clinics: Pellissier Science Laboratory #1 at Kasese Humanist Primary School, and Pellissier Science Laboratory #2 at Vision Care School. The two schools provide free medical care and medicine to over 500 students, in this area plagued with malaria and other diseases.

Bob Pellissier also set up a “Pellissier Science Scholarship” that enabled four orphaned students to transfer from the rural Nyakiyumu Widows Orphanage School, to the high-performing Kasese Humanist Primary School.

He also purchased shoes and sandals for 35 barefooted orphans at Kasese Humanist Primary School.

In November, Bob Pellissier will be visiting Uganda with four members of his family, to inspect his projects there. He is throwing a huge party for 589 children in Kyarumba. 150 chickens will be roasted and served. Bob is throwing the party with his son Eric, who is also a generous contributor to the children in this area.
