Founder’s word

Why I started up CECYA

One would ask why I started up this Idea of catering for vulnerable children.

A little back ground about me.
I grew up in a poor family where getting my basic needs was very complicated. I lived in a life am sure is not fit for a young child as I was. With all that I had gone through, I developed a feeling of wanting to help poor children and needy ones as well. This accounted for my actions of initiating an organization called Christians Effort for Children, Youths, and Adults (CECYA), hoping to help as many young stars as possible.

Much of my testimonial can be got upon request.

Challenges I have had in this project:

i.      Mainly funds are the problem. Our simple projects need to be developed. The funds that would have been used to develop such projects have always been diverted to providing basic needs for the children i.e. food, clothing among others.

ii.      Most of these parents’ children died and those who have guardians are too poor to take care of them.

iii.      My fellow staff members and I have been using our salaries to run most project programs, so we badly need sponsors.

iv.      There’s also: Payment of workers like project workers, Feeding children, and providing other basic needs So far children stay in their guardians’ families which are very poor even to feed them.

v.      Sudden illnesses among the children which creates another set of unbudgeted expenses.

Future expectations:

  • We expect to have an orphanage where these children can stay and be well provided for.
  • We expect to have good schools for orphans ( with up-to-date modern education facilities)
  • We expect there to be a reduction of street children in Entebbe.
  • We expect the work of creating awareness among people about HIV/AIDS to be faster due to acquisition of modern facilities like a vehicle, speakers, and projectors, among others.
  • We expect to have safer water sources like boreholes, water tanks, and protected wells which will reduce the rapid out break of water borne diseases.
  • We expect to have good self funding projects based in the community.

The organization has:
4 acres of land around Kamuli district.
Running projects: Cattle and goats, Poultry, A community clinic.
