Personal Story
I was born in Ssenyomo villagemy in Luweero district and on my return in 2005 after a number of years of being away, I could not believe what my eyes saw, a village that used to have plenty of food and fruits through out the year had turned into a hopeless and helpless community due to lack of food and all the trees had been wiped out for charcoal – deforestation, leading to drought and less rain during the rainy season.

The majority left in the village were widows and grandmothers whose husbands had died in the HIV/AIDS epidemic or had been killed during the 1981 Luweero triangle war. The sound of the crying orphans hit me so badly. I felt heart-broken and helpless as I had seen with my eyes the grandmothers left to care for the young ones yet had nothing to feed them.

I had no immediate answers to the urgent needs but I was hopeful to improve this situation. Through community partnership and village elders mobilization, we all agreed to work as a team and walk alongside each other in the journey for change and transformation. This partnership became CanAfric Community Initiative (CACI).
