GREAT Project ‘Oteka’ Theme Song

This music video features the GREAT Project’s ‘Oteka’ Radio Drama Series theme song, which was written and recorded by a group of young boys and girls in northern Uganda who won the theme song competition. Excitingly, this song has become an anthem for the project as a whole.


I respect people, my parents and everyone.
I do not discriminate against girls.
I do not discriminate against boys.
Sit down and talk if there are issues among you.
Our boys, our girls: HIV/AIDS is still there in the world.
STIs are also there, early marriage is there.
Share ideas and listen to teachings and we will be GREAT!

Our girls, our boys, join groups and listen to teachings from Oteka project.
Use family planning to delay pregnancies, and you will be GREAT.
Girls can also graze the goats; boys can also cook.
Do all the chores together and you will be GREAT.
