Proud to be a Musoga (P2BAM) is a campaign to restore pride, unity and development to the once proud and prosperous Basoga people and Busoga region.
This is a campaign started by The Ideas Factory Ltd , a marketing consultancy and events agency registered in Uganda, specialising in ideas generation and implementation in key sectors of tourism, financial services, retail etc.
Proud to be a Musoga is registered in Uganda as a community project and is not for profit.
P2BAM started as an awareness campaign to promote identity and to invoke pride amongst the Basoga. It used a Proud to be a Musoga t-shirt to drive awareness, rallying call and talking point for everyone. Key to the campaign’s success is using social media as the major communication platform. The P2BAM campaign has since developed to promote unity amongst the Basoga, again with a t-shirt design, depicting the current Kyabazinga wa Busoga and closely following and promoting Busoga Kingdom events.
5% of all proceeds of merchandise (after expenses) is collected for the establishment and running of social initiatives in Busoga like health, education etc.
In Uganda for delivery of merchandise (t-shirts, caps, mugs etc.), we operate a delivery system in Kampala, but have an agent in Jinja where one can buy these items from directly. We have just opened up this web-site Proudmusoga.co.ug to enable international clients to directly order, securely pay and be guaranteed delivery in their own country. The campaign has since targeted Basoga in Europe, US, South Africa and the Emirates.
The Ideas Factory Ltd is a private limited company incorporated in Uganda in 2008.
