CACI King David Learning Center.
The center is situated in the rural areas of Mukono district Kiwugo village, Namuyenje supporting the vulnerable children to start accessing education and reduce on walking long and risk movements to reach the next school in this village.
The community land was grabbed by the few rich people who left the poor people lacking land for cultivation of crops that would have supported their families and sending children to school.
CACI is therefore requesting volunteers to join us and secure these children’s’ future with education by offering your time to teach the children, play with them, share stories and other activities that will bring a smile on their faces.
