  • Description


    We are a Community Based Organization (CBO) founded in 2014 by Niwomwesigwa Gidion. He studied Tourism and Hotel management (diploma).
    In his life time, Gideon has grown in a family of a very responsible mother, creative but with a drunkard father. This situation is too much in communities around this area and Uganda at large.
    Many children have lost their parents by alcohol in many ways example of some who engage in sexual acts acquire AIDS and also die of alcohol it's self.
    This has caused a situation of children quitting school because they can't manage to meet school requirements most especially school fees. Daily fights in most families ,women complain too much of their irresponsible husbands, children becoming hooligans and street children, thieves, widows and bad enough most widows resorting to alcohol because they are jobless.

    So such situations led to the formation of this Organization to do the following:
    1. To promote agriculture.
    2. To teach and form handcrafts class between the young and old.
    3. To promote education and start a school from nursery to primary level in future.
    4. To educate and give career guidance to the local people ( men and women) more especially on the harm brought by alcohol and sexual immorality.
