    Description

    Daniel and a team of development minded people started this program to enrich peoples’ lives with IT options for self sustenance. We provide appropriate IT support to schools. We are passionate about empowering youths and transforming communities.

    Daniel is married to Juliet a computer instructor, and are blessed with three sons Dylan, (16years), Darryl (14years), and Dawn (7yrs) and reside in Kalisizo, Kyotera district 3hrs drive from Kampala City.

    Daniel would love to receive volunteers interested in sharing their skills, experiences, equipping with computer knowledge and life skills, do charity work, etc. I have a passion to work with the marginalized. We desire to empower youths with practical skills for self sustenance.

    Consider volunteering with us and help us impact lives positively. Come and demystify all you have heard about Africa. We are a lovely, hospitable, disciplined, hard working people.
