!2017 – Uganda PreIndependence & PostIndependence 

reTwooger: 170929tko.

*By Prof.Eric Kashambuzi*

Who would be happy if their country is taken over by foreigners be they from Africa or outside. Uganda allowed Tutsi refugees from Rwanda into Uganda from 1959 social revolution which they sparked. They were admitted into Uganda on humanitarian ground and on a temporary basis. I was in senior one at that time. When Kabale area became overburdened some were moved to other parts including in Ankole, Rujumbura, Bunyoro and Toro. This was done purely on humanitarian grounds to the children of God seeking a temporary  place for their families.
My late father a priest by profession instructed us his children and his late wife that we should extend them a helping hand when they arrived at our church. We did everything we could without asking questions.

Now it is these people that are murdering us, keeping us out of our country, destroying our properties, denying us what is rightly ours. That is why some of us who went through this situation don’t want it to happen to our children.

It was Obote who moved a motion in LEGCO to allow all Tutsi refugees into Uganda without limiting the numbers. It is these refugees that joined Amin security forces and murdered our people. It is these people that Obote fought for that helped Okello to throw him out of power in 1985.

What many Ugandans don’t understand is that the Tutsi refugees into Uganda are the ones that had the administrative experience in Rwanda. They arrived in Uganda as the British were leaving so Tutsi learned English quickly and replaced departing British. Do you remember Frank Kalimuzo who rose to be vice chancellor of Makerere and a very senior adviser to Obote? Do you know where he came from? Rwanda.

When Museveni captured power do you remember Fred Rwigyema, Paul Kagame, Dr Baingana, Kaaka etc? Do you know the jobs they occupied? Do you remember the many Rwandans who left Uganda in 1994? Personally I was shocked because I thought these were Ugandans. Who in his mind would be happy to see their country taken over by foreigners who then proceed to murder citizens, chase them out of their country and destroy their business.

Since I supported FDC in 2016 elections go to Rukungiri and see the damage to my properties hiding behind a family feud when the damage is politically motivated. Carrots have been offered to achieve the political goal of silencing me or worse. We must not allow this to happen to our children. This struggle with Museveni is about self-defense if not self-determination. 

Native Ugandans need to understand Museveni is allowing refugees, immigrants Into Uganda to use them to fight us and take over our country. The longer we allow him the more people he will bring in to fight us, take our land and we become serfs as happened in Rwanda when Tutsi defeated Bantu who were later dubbed Hutu, meaning slaves. Don’t forget Hutu had kings that were abolished. That’s what Museveni will do to Uganda kings at an appropriate time. These NRM MPs with their speaker don’t understand what they are doing and the adverse implications for their children or relatives. They should recast and join with those fighting to take our country back.

I am doing this for God and Our Country.

!2017 – Yoweri’s Creed Against Native Ugandans.1

reTwooger: 170928tko.

Hima and Tutsi clan 50 year Master Conspiracy Plan.
Dear Ugandans, here is a document from Uganda governement archive’s: 

MEETING HELD AT THE HOME OF H.E. PRESIDENT Y.M. MUSEVENI, THE PRESIDENT OF UGANDA AT RUSHERE NYABUSHOZI ON 15-3-1992

AGENDA 

1. Prayers

2. Opening Remarks by H.E. (Chairman  Yoweri Kaguta Museveni)

3. Strategy for the next 50 years 

4. Plan of Action 

Minute 1.00:

The meeting started with a prayer led by Rt. Rev. Bishop Ruhindi at exactly 11.00p.m. who prayed for good deliberations.

Minute 2:00:

The Chairman, H.E. welcomed the Basita Clan and other clans present in his home. He briefed members present the purpose of the meeting and thanked organizers for a good job done.  He told members that the only opportunity they have is this one when he is still President. He directed Hope Kivengyere to act as a link between his office and these people at grass roots. He told them that they were few in number and that he fought to liberate them so that they could be heard in society and Uganda at large.  He reminded them of the need to have a master plan for at least fifty years if the Hima clan is to remain vibrant and rich.

H.E. told his listeners that if they cannot use the opportunity maximally, their daughters and sons would blame them in future. At this function he revealed to them a scheme and plan of action in order for them to achieve their desired goals as: To have the highest education qualifications during his term of office for their children. To make sure they are the richest people in Uganda with the 50 years master plan. To make sure they control the army and have the highest ranks in the army. To ensure that they take charge of all the resources in the country.  To ensure none of those not concerned, not to know about the action plan. 

Every one of them was directed to recruit the Bahima boys to join the army so that they could dominate the ISO, PPU, ESO and Military Police as this would assist in the resisting of other tribes that would attempt to take power by the use of force.

Minute 3.00: 

The chairman informed the members to unite so that they could remain the only kings in the region. He said that the master plan couldn’t be achieved unless 80% of their youths are properly trained and equipped with the best necessities to maintain these issues. At this juncture the chairman directed Mr. Elly Karuhanga to take charge of educating the sons and daughters and send them abroad in countries such as India, England, America and South Africa. Karuhanga accepted the responsibility without hesitation. The chairman also directed Mr. Kirimani to take charge of educating the daughters and sons internally, especially to ensure that he put up special school in Nyabushozi to cater for the interests of the group, On this note Mr. Kutesa suggested to upgrade Bunyanyeru Resettlement School from Nursery up to Secondary, which was passed with no arguments.

Minute 4.00: 

Mr. Elly Rwakakoko interjected the chairman’s speech by giving directions to members on the real discussion by introducing a new chapter of how H.E. could be succeeded after his term of office. On this point Mrs. Jovia Salim Saleh begged the members to ensure that after H.E. the next president must come from the Basita clan. She said that she had done a lot for the Basita and taken a lot of risks for the last 20 years and therefore it was important that the Basita take charge of the resources of the country. The members resolved that she was not in order.

Minute 5.00: 

Mzee Ephrann Rusimira suggested that the new president should be the brother to the president if the master plan is to succeed. He warned that if the Bairu and non Bahima clans got to know about the action plan, it would fail to take off.

Minute 6.00: 

Mzee Rutamwebwa suggested that Salim Saleh should go back to school if the objectives of the action are to be achieved. He suggested that Salim Saleh had to get a quote O Level Certificate and « A »Level Certificate. This was unanimously agreed to.

He also suggested that someone close, possibly the son of H.E. should be groomed to take over the reigns from Salim Saleh. This too was agreed on and the group begged H.E. to look around for a boy who would be groomed.The group also brainstormed about how to destroy those who would gang up to take power from the clan. Death was suggested for the potential leaders who would attempt to fail the master plan.

Minute 7.00: The way Forward: 

a) Deny other people access to economic resources through:

i. Overtaxing individuals and companies, which don’t belong to our people and protect those of our people.

ii. Destroying co-operative societies and unions.

iii. Selling Parastatals and public enterprises that others don’t gain from them.

iv. Commercialize education and health services.

b) Our people to be employed in lucrative public offices from which they should reap maximally while being protected from prosecution.

c) Destruction of the economic, military and political will of Northern and Eastern Uganda.

d) Immediate return of non-political Kabaka of Buganda while we promote disunity among the Buganda.

e) Uniting all Bahima in the Great Lakes Region and awakening their political, military and economic process.

f) Participating in the exploitation of economic resources of rich neighboring states.

g) Making strategic alliances with whatever power in the world that will enhance achievement of this plan.

Minute 8.00: 

Members recommended that all those given responsibility must ensure the achievement of the objectives. H.E. was mandated to appoint committees or individuals to implement the different aspects of the master plan. Confidentiality must be ensured at all costs.

These are the four skills you should highlight on your CV, according to top CEOs

CEO.jpg

Ready to smash that glass ceiling? Scroll down to discover skills that you should highlight on your CV. And if you want more career advice don’t miss this year’s Stylist Live, where successful entrepreneurs will be sharing even more advice from our Grow stage (if you’re thinking about changing careers, we recommend the 12:30 talk on Friday 10 November – 

(How to break into a business you know nothing about’).

1. Purpose

“One of the most important skills for a CEO – and one that is only going to increase in importance – is finding and maintaining a sense of purpose,” says Arianna Huffington. “Many people think of purpose as something that’s fixed, but purpose is actually a skill, one that can be built and nurtured throughout an organization so that everyone within the company has internalized what the company stands for beyond profits and growth.”

“Millennials and Gen Xers only want to work for leaders who are authentic: open, sharing, true-to-their-values, compassionate, committed to a clear sense of purpose and, most importantly, possessed with courage to make bold decisions,” adds Bill George


2. The ability to empower employees

“CEOs have to learn how to recruit and manage talent to keep pace with rapid change,” says Reid Hoffman. “Rather than focusing exclusively on salary or perks, make your organization the best possible launch pad for amazing careers.”

According to the report, today’s employees want ownership over their roles, purpose in their work and learning opportunities to advance their career – and if those expectations aren’t met, they will start looking for work elsewhere.

Arianna Huffington adds that setting examples of a healthy work-life balance and wellness are equally important factors to consider, since research proves that professionals do their best when they are able to enjoy both plenty of sleep and time away from work.

“We’re overwhelmed by technology, and that’s only going to increase,” Huffington said. “Technology allows us to do amazing things, but – if we let it – it also accelerates the pace of our lives to the point where it consumes our attention and our ability to focus and be present. And it’s going to be those CEOs who are able to truly disconnect – and reclaim the time and space they need to be creative, to innovate, to access their own wisdom and intuition – who will win the future.”

Here are the most desirable skills for future CEOs

3. A willingness to learn

In a world that’s moving forward at an unrelenting speed, future CEOs need to be comfortable with one major thing – change.

And in order to react to that change, aspiring business leaders must be willing to keep learning.

“As a CEO, you need to become an infinite learner to make yourself more adaptable,” says Reid Hoffman. “The world of business is changing, and you can’t rely solely on your previous expertise, no matter effective it has been until now.”

The report suggests looking towards successful CEOs who dedicate time each week to learning, and gives Mark Zuckerberg and Oprah Winfrey as key examples.

4. Being active on social media

According to Ryan Holmes (the CEO of social media tool Hootsuite), 61 percent of Fortune 500 CEOs have no social media presence at all – and that’s a mistake.

The business leaders who are active on social media – Holmes, Hoffman, Huffington and George among them – have a platform from which to share their message directly with the world, not to mention an opportunity to showcase their purpose and attract the best talent to their company.

“For CEOs, social media is, in no uncertain terms, a core competency,” says Holmes. “Those who are able to master it tap into the most dominant communication platform today. Those who ignore it risk having the competition eat their lunch.”

!2017 – Major General Oyite Ojok Demise 1983.

reTwogger: 170921tko.

By: 2Lt (Rtd) Francis Olipa

GENERAL OYITE OJOK

David Oyite Ojok (15 April 1940 – 2 December 1983) was a Ugandan military commander who held one of the leadership positions in the coalition between Uganda National Liberation Army and Tanzania People’s Defence Force which removed strongman Idi Amin in 1979 and, until his death in a helicopter crash, served as the national army chief of staff with the rank of Major General.

He was in exile in Tanzania in the 1970s, yet his tribe, the Langi knew for certain that David Oyite Ojok was a great soldier who would return from exile and crush the then ruling monstrous dictator Iddi Amin Dada; and so they said to Amin in a Luo song. “Dada ka pwod ru ineko Oyite Ojok ibino neon can….,” meaning “Dada as long as you have not yet killed Oyite Ojok, your demise looms large”. They sang that song all the time throughout Amin’s rule, at evening drinks & bars, marriage parties, funeral rites etc.

David Oyite Ojok was born 15th April 1940 in Loro, Oyam District Lango Sub-region. He joined the army in 1963 and rose through ranks and by 1971 when Amin took power he was a Major and had just been promoted to a newly created post of Assistant Military Secretary in the Ministry of Defense.

According to people who worked with him, Oyite was jolly, social and liked to be part of the crowd. He was also loved by his soldiers. 

When Obote fled to Tanzania in 1971, Oyite and many other soldiers and politicians loyal to him followed him. In the next 8 years, they would go through a long struggle and fight to return to power and finally defeating Iddi Amin in 1979. During the war, Oyite Ojok commanded the main rebel front UNLA (Uganda National Liberation Army) that fought alongside the Tanzanian Army to uproot Amin’s regime.

And on 11th April 1979 when they victoriously marched onto Kampala, Oyite went to Radio Uganda and made the famous take-over announcement saying, “…the fascist regime of Idi Amin is no longer in power.” It is also interesting to note that late President Obote wrote in 1990 that when Amin’s regime was falling, Museveni wanted so much to be the one to issue the announcement of the take-over. And when Oyite-Ojok made the broadcast, he was annoyed.

When a military council was formed to govern the post Amin Uganda, Oyite Ojok became the Army Chief of Staff. He was also a member of the Military Council that governed the country during the transition period together with Paulo Muwanga, Yoweri Museveni, and Tito Okello. 

During the swearing-in ceremony of the interim President Yusufu Lule at Uganda Parliament in Kampala, Oyite-Ojok, dressed in battle fatigues and wearing a steel helmet, was introduced as the new Army Chief of Staff. Soon after, a large crowd of jubilant Ugandans lifted Oyite-Ojok shoulder-high, marched through the streets of Kampala and paraded the new Chief of Staff, the war hero. When the liberation forces reached Oyite Ojok’s home town of Lira in Lango, a huge crowd again lifted him shoulder-high.

During the transition period between 1979 and 1980 Oyite remained loyal to Obote who at that time was preparing to return to Uganda. Consequently he prevented all attempts brought up to frustrate Obote’s return to Uganda most noticeably by the interim leaders Lule and Binaisa. 

 In 1980 elections were held and Milton Obote was announced the winner while other candidates like Museveni cried foul and took to the bush.

It is Obote II regime that would demonstrate Oyite’s military and political strength. This was a delicate period in Uganda and yet peace and security of Ugandans rested in his hands and skills. 

WHAT DID OYITE DO IN OBOTE II?

Kampala insecurity: The immediate problem Oyite was faced with as the army Chief of Staff was the widespread insecurity in Kampala at that time where most of the blame fell on errant UNLA soldiers. There were robberies, lootings and killings of civilians. Even though Oyite Ojok was known to be tough on indiscipline soldiers, motivating poorly paid battle ridden soldiers was a tall order. The complex situation finally proved overwhelming and dangerous and sadly claiming his life. The following BBC interview of Oyite Ojok was conducted by Jeremy Paxman in 1981.

Jeremy Paxman: Really why all the gunshots and death around Kampala almost on a daily basis?

Oyite Ojok: There are a few bandits who are giving us well… a bit of difficult time.

Jeremy Paxman: Surely Brigadier, if these were just a few bandits why would you have road blocks all over the place?

Oyite Ojok: I told you that these bandits are robbing guns with guns! Robbing people with guns!

Jeremy Paxman: We saw a soldier robbing a civilian’s bicycle and another robbing money from a woman. Now these may be isolated cases but there are complaints everywhere of soldiers not only robbing people but killing some and this reflects badly on the image of the army, does it not?

Oyite Ojok: That depends how you want to put it. If your business is going around looking for which soldier is robbing whose bicycle, may be you will find a soldier robbing a train!

Jeremy Paxman: But these are issues that should concern you?

Oyite Ojok: Sure! You show me which soldier is doing whatever wrong thing and I will take a severe disciplinary action against that soldier.

Paxman: Have you actually taken such actions?

Oyite Ojok: Absolutely, the jail is full. 
HONEST AND RESPECT: Many former soldiers narrate how the army commander in Obote II, General Tito Okello was always at peace with the Chief of Staff Major General Oyite Ojok. It is said that whenever General Tito Okello summoned Oyite-Ojok for a discussion, he responded and accorded Tito Okello maximum respect. This always got Tito admiring how lovely a soldier Oyite was.

THE SUDDEN DEATH: 3rd December 1983 was a sad day indeed! When Oyite perished in that helicopter crush, many did not want to believe and let go the man they held as the pillar of Obote II government. Many historians say that there is no other leader in the history of Uganda whose death has been deeply mourned like that of Major General David Oyite Ojok.

Many people in Northern Uganda where Oyite Ojok came from reported strange experiences they claimed were as a result of the sudden death. For instance, that day some people in Lango said that the sky did not look normal! Others said that they saw Oyite Ojok in the clouds, and more said that they saw red clouds.

Meanwhile in Buganda the exact opposite was true: That day people brought out drums, balafons, and all sorts of musical instruments and celebrated! Most of them were heard saying that with the death of Oyite Ojok, their arch enemy President Obote would not last longer.

!2017 – Why Yoweri Museveni hates native Ugandans

Secrets why Museveni hates and wrecks endless revenge on native Ugandans

Museveni:. “The environment we have created is realising a hopeless population and when hopeless people choose indiscipline as a means of survival, it will no longer be justified to ‘crush’ them.:

+   Museveni has treated native Ugandans ruthlesslyBy: Eric KashambuzWhy Museveni has treated native Ugandans ruthlessly


By: Eric Kashambuzi

As Museveni prepares to address the UN General Assembly in New York, let me synthesize for public information and necessary action what has been written and said about Museveni since the 1960s when he entered Uganda politics while at Ntare School in then Ankole kingdom. His political footsteps in Uganda and beyond have been traced since then to the present day.

His early association with Tutsi refugees from Rwanda raised eyebrows and initiated a search about his place of birth. As a prefect at Ntare School, I knew Museveni fairly well.

Up to now nobody knows where Museveni was born or his clan. He has been described as Tutsi, Hima or Hororo (Muhororo). Increasingly and in part because of the way he is treating or neglecting native Ugandans many believe he was born in Rwanda.

Museveni’s intentions and preferences began to show after Amin captured power in 1971. He like other young men and women wanted to oust Amin from power by military means. Some of us volunteered to join with him in this noble effort for our country but he sidelined us from carrying the gun, a preserve, we later learned, for Tutsi people. He focused on recruiting from Tutsi refuge camps in Uganda. He had obtained information about their locations in Uganda when he worked in President Obote’s office as an assistant in charge of refugees.

As he became more visible in the public arena people began to ask what he had studied at the Dar es Salaam campus of then University of East Africa and why he didn’t study at Makerere University

Stories circulated that he was not a Ugandan citizen and couldn’t qualify for Makerere education. They explained that he came from Rwanda with his mother and they lived in various places including in present day Ntungamo and Mbarara districts.

His education at Dar also became problematic. Up to today no one knows what he studied and graduated in. In 1991 he reported in an interview that he studied political economy (Africa Forum 1991). Apparently there was no such a subject taught at Dar at that time. Ipso facto his country of birth and university education have cast a thick shadow around him made thicker by the fact that according to the 1995 Uganda constitution the president must be qualified to become a member of parliament inter alia with a minimum formal education of Advanced Level standard or its equivalent (high school diploma).

Ugandans have therefore wanted someone with a clean record on country of birth and at least a university degree. People believe that it is for this reason, inter alia, that Museveni relies on foreign experts particularly in economic matters. Economists are few in his administration. At home and in Uganda missions abroad, Museveni has relied more on human and animal doctors and lawyers.

When he launched the guerrilla war in 1981, his reason was that he wanted to restore the Catholic-dominated Democratic Party (DP) that in his view won the 1980 elections. Yusufu Lule a Muganda and DP supporter became chairman of the National Resistance Movement (NRM) with Museveni as vice chairman. Lule passed on a year before Museveni and his guerrilla fighters captured power. Attempts to elect a new chairman were thwarted by Museveni then acting chairman. Baganda and Catholics believe he became president by default and then promised he would step down shortly thereafter so a Catholic and/or a Muganda would succeed him. That didn’t and hasn’t happened.

Museveni knows how unhappy these two groups are and he is not yielding but suppressing them instead. In fact Obote I government had more Catholics in top positions including ministers than Museveni has appointed. Obote I government also had two Muslim full cabinet ministers.

Museveni had wanted to contest the 1980 elections as leader of DP but was not allowed by DP supporters and other leaders especially in Ankole who knew that he was a foreigner and Protestant.

Late in the game, Museveni co-founded the Uganda Patriotic Movement (UPM) but other members didn’t want him to lead in part because of his questionable nationality and doubts about his education. Ankole politics of Bahima/Bairu also played a part (A.M. Kirunda-Kivejinja 1995).

He finally made it as leader of UPM but he didn’t forget how he was treated by native Ugandans especially those where Tutsi/Hima and Bairu rivalries are still strong. For example, no one from Bairu of Rujumbura/ Rukungiri district has held a high profile post in Museveni government yet the best educated and experienced come from this group.

He contested a parliamentary seat in Mbarara part of former Ankole kingdom but lost to a DP candidate, Sam Kutesa who is now minister of foreign affairs. Museveni didn’t forget that and it is believed that when the kingdoms were restored Ankole was denied it’s kingdom.

When he lost the election and his arch-rival Obote won, Museveni resolved to get him out by military means. He tried to use Ankole as his base but apparently was refused. Baganda who were eager to get rid of Obote offered him the Luwero Triangle as his base of military operations. Baganda and Catholics joined him but Museveni relied on his Tutsi commanders which created a sectarian problem.

As fighting progressed Baganda were unhappy because of the atrocities committed against them and began to withdraw support from him. “Some Baganda turned against the refugees because of the terror tactics that the NRA employed to recruit the Baganda into its ranks and to eliminate opposition to its presence in the Luwero Triangle”(Howard Adelman and Astri Suhrke 2000). He was saved by the support he got from some Baganda leaders who it is reported called on their subjects to support Museveni over other military leaders. Museveni didn’t forget how Baganda mistreated him and Tutsi refugees. He has since then it is believed deliberately scattered them throughout the world. Their land has been grabbed and is now being used by foreigners from neighboring countries and beyond.

When he captured power in 1986, Museveni appointed Baganda and Catholics to high profile positions but progressively he has marginalized them considerably. The vice president from Buganda has very limited power if at all. Baganda generals and other senior military officers who were regarded as potential opponents of Museveni have been eliminated (Howard Adelman and Astri Suhrke 2000).

During the guerrilla war Museveni worked with the Okello group in the national army on the understanding that once Obote is gone, Museveni would serve in the new government under the presidency of Okello.

Instead Museveni ousted Okello and became president. Okello supporters expressed disappointment. “We paved the way for the NRA by overthrowing Obote”, several Acholi explained, ” and Museveni paid us back by betraying us”(Robert Gersony 1997). And Museveni apparently fearing that Acholi and other northern and eastern soldiers might settle scores, he preempted that possibility by waging a war that lasted over twenty years with massive loss of human lives and properties.

All these developments have raised opposition against Museveni and his regime throughout the country, defeating him in the 2016 elections which many believe he stole with the support of the electoral commission and the supreme Court.

Those in the opposition at home and abroad have declared defiance against Museveni’s authoritarian, sectarian and corrupt regime. Native Uganda citizens are being killed as happened in Kasese, jailed, tortured, exiled, dispossessed of their properties especially land by foreigners from neighbouring countries and beyond and increasingly by refugees and immigrants disguised as legal mobility by East Africans under the customs union arrangements.

The demographic composition is changing and soon outsiders may exceed in numbers the native population that is being coerced into adopting birth control that the authorities prefer to call family planning as if the latter will not reduce population size of families and the nation.

The current land bill before parliament is feared that if it goes through native Ugandans will become landless, rootless, powerless and voiceless and a potential political threat to peace and security in Uganda and beyond.

Museveni’s plans to change the age limit is also believed that it is intended to keep Museveni in power for life. Meanwhile with military support it is feared he might abolish kingdoms, turn Uganda into an empire and declare himself the first emperor of Uganda. Bokassa declared himself the emperor of Central African Republic. He was later removed by force because of his brutality towards his people including school children.

During his campaign for president of the United States of America, Mr. Donald Trump (now President Donald Trump) declared at least twice that should he become president he will remove Museveni from power. The people of Uganda are anxiously waiting for that moment.

War effects. Neglect.

*A little bit of context*

Oyam is a very young administrative District created in the last 10 years curved out of Lango Sub-Region. Located in Northern Uganda, It lies in the more than three decades (1970s, 1980s, 1990s to 2000’s) Amin & rebel-other war-torn area of Uganda. Decades of those wars left huge devastation to local communities in terms of Human Development and Infrastructure.

//
But there’s a problem

[Explaining what the problem is] and opportunities.

As mentioned above, the long term effects of Dictator Idi Amin in the 1970s as well Kony’s war against people of this part of Northern Uganda spanning 1980s through 2000s left minimum human development and infrastructure. Poverty is rampant. Education level in the populace is  minimally. The Primary/Grade 7 and early secondary Drop-Out is so rampant.
We anticipate that setting & building up this Cummunity Training School will go far in retraining the community youths and adults and preparing them for better more useful citizens.
This will also be an opportunity to gain revenue down the road for further development or advancement once we are well established.

[What are we doing about it]

Avoiding non-profit buzzwords that no-one really understands (seriously, don’t do it).]

Here’s what we’re doing about it.
We are going to open a Rural Trade school in the Township of Kamdini, Oyam District, Lango Sub-Region in Northern Uganda, the area that was plugued with war for at least three decades. We are targeting a startup of 2 Technical classes. This will absorb the drop-outs from upper primary classes eg Grade 6/7 as well drop-outs from secondary. We intend to hire 2 Instructors to begin with. We already have 2 buildings to accommodate thus set up and we might need to Renovate and bring electricity in. The Township already has access to electricity. This we know will bring higher standard of living to the graduates as they could gain practical technical skills. 

And how it’s going to change the world

[How will what we are doin going to change the world or make a difference.]

OCTC, The Oyam Rural Community College, will start to bridge the gap between a dropped out student due to higher tuition fees and affordability.  Ours will quickly admit and train students and bring to them core Trade and Computer skills much needed to grow and develop rural areas. We will embark on embedding Computer skills in any other trade training that we will offer. We will Train them for self sufficiency. Free On line references and exposure to much needed Technical skills will be brought to home.

We strive to elevate poverty and enhance higher quality of living for community development and a better world right from village level to urban strategy. 

[How much do we need and what are we going to spend it on?]

We need to raise at least CAD$36,000.00 ($36,000 x UGX,2800 Per Dollar ~ = UGX100M) to get started:

Here is our conservative estimate broken down into major sections;

We are asking for funds to:

• UGX6.0M; Renovate/Lease/Rent Building at Kamdini Township/or Oyam District Township; Lease/Rent: UGX500,000/Mth x 12Mths/Yr=UGX6.0M/year; (UGX6,000,000÷2,800=CAD $2,142.00)/Yr;

• UGX30.0M; Purchase Initial furniture for Classrooms: Chairs, Tables, Desks, Work Benches, Lab Tools etc; UGX20-30M; 

UGX20.0M÷UGX2,800=CAD $7,142.85 to 

UGX30.0M

÷UGX2,800

=CAD $10,715.00

• UGX11.2M: Purchase 20 Computers for Classrooms; refurbished in Canada: $200×20=CAD $4000xUGX2,800=UGX11.2M;

 • UGX10.0M: Shipping and Handling: UGX10.0M÷UGX2,800=CAD $3,571.45;

• UGX840,000 (UGX0.84M): Purchase Office and Classroom Printers ($150×2)=CAD $300 $300×UGX2,800=UGX840,000;

• UGX20.0M: Hire couple Instructors: UGX20M/Year? 

UGX20M÷2,800=CAD $7,142.85/Yr;

• UGX2.8M: Social and Multimedia Advertising our College:                                    CAD $1,000×UGX2,800=UGX2.8M; 

 • UGX20.0M; Register our College to the District/National Authorities + Miscellaneous: UGX20M

UGX20,000,000÷2,800=CAD $7,142.85 

We ask you to kindly donate so we can all pride in community development. One community at a time. 

Thank you.
