Celebrating in Style


August 2015 saw the arrival of the official tenth year anniversary of Kampala Children's Centre, a decade since it first opened its gates in 2005. We invited all our supporters to commemorate this momentous occasion, as we held formal and informal celebrations between the 11th August to the 5th September. 
We were joined by over 50 of our dear friends, 

of whom were from the U.K, Belgium, Rwanda, Kenya and the US. To crown these celebrations we were also visited by His Excellency General Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, the President of the Republic of Uganda.
We 
truly celebrated in glittering style.

Our celebrations began upon the 11th August and started with a bang!
For the royalty that our children are, we agree it is only fitting we begin celebrating with the tribally and nationally respected Prime Minister of Buganda! Press conferences were held and attended by over 30 media houses, including national newspapers, all major television stations and radio stations. We also hosted visits from Hon Peter Mayiga, the H.E Edward Sekandi

and the Vice President of the Republic of Uganda, upon the 19th August.
The pinnacle of the celebrations however, were upon the 5th of September whereby the centre warmly received His Excellency General Yoweri Kaguta Museveni the President of the Republic of Uganda.
The length of the Presidents visit was scheduled to last one hour, once he arrived however, he was visibly moved by what he saw and extended his visit to almost three hours 
insisting upon a photo shoot on site, congratulating the team on all that has been achieved.
Throughout his stay the President officially opened Kampala Children's Centre, planted a tree by Abundant House and laid the foundation stones of the Educational and Medical Centres. The President was welcomed by over 3,000 people to whom he described Bishop Arnold Muwonge, a 'True disciple of Jesus, going beyond preaching to reach out to the needs of the community'.
The celebrations also saw our volunteers connect once again with our children's cheeky faces. 
Our K.C.C staff and children ran many sports events, swimming lessons, drama and musical performances.It was a wonderful time to enjoy each others company (and find fun mischief!)
From the first purchase of Gombe Hill with just a vision, to commemorating a centre that now now cares for over 600 children, Kampala Children's Centre has truly undertaken unprecedented leaps of faith and growth over the past decade.
But our greatest blessing, are our children.We have been blessed to receive such beautiful hearts, that have grown into young men and women. Adults, that embody the vision of K.C.C, which is to know and be loved and it is this, that is all we could have ever hoped for.
