Before even releasing a song, Buju Banton has launched a foundation to aid at risk youth through life.

The Buju Banton Foundation will implement programs to develop and nurture at risk youth from newborn to twenty years old. The programs will provide skills training, talent development, educational empowerment and more to these youths.

Buju, who was recently released from U.S. prison, says he knows what it’s like to have big dreams.

The foundation seeks to not only assist the youth through programs but also provide hope.
