The Fred Kasozi Memorial Camp

The Fred Kasozi Memorial Camp evolved out of a students work camp started in 2006, after the demise of our Founder and Executive Director Mr. Freddie Henry Kasozi, we saw it fit to model his principles through the camp. In 2010 the Fred Kasozi Memorial Camp was birthed with dreams to give every girl who joins CGC a chance to receive inspiration and vocational skills. The 3-5 overnight camps focus on allowing the girls to share their dreams, celebrate their uniqueness and receive inspiration from significant models like Women Leaders, Family Models and icons in Philanthropy, The ARTS, Academic Excellence, Corporate and the Marketplace. Skills that have been imparted over the last 19 years include; Character Training for Life and Work, Making of Reusable Sanitary Towels, Art Craft in Batik making, Making Mats, Sewing and knitting of Hats, Photography, Writing, Bakery and Cookery, Ugandan Food preparation, Etiquette, Fashion and Design, Decoration and Flower arrangement, Making Liquid Soap, Candles and to mention but a few.

School Development Projects

2 Librabries, 2 Water Tanks, 2 Changing bathrooms, 2 Teachers' houses, 1 Kitchen, 100 single seater desks

At CGC we believe strongly, that we are family and as our girls attend school we become part of the school growth. Investing in the schools means our girls' best interests and the interests of all stakeholder in that community will benefit from the growth of this school. No one wants to take a child to school without facilities. School must be a place of pride and also equipped to meet the needs of all children. We believe in equal distribution of resources that benefit all children. Our School develpoment projects are intended to meet the needs of all children including the boy child; the teachers and non-teaching staff. Our Model to make friendly the school environment means our girls will stay in School and achieve their learning outcomes.

We began resource centres in 2007 to create a vibrant community that seeks to learn and expand our influence in literacy, information technology, enterprise and climate change. The Three Resource Centers in Luwero, Mazzi and Kampala have been able to serve Children and Youth, Men and Women with various activities. These include: Books and reading materials for interaction and literacy, News Papers and TV News hours for information, Computers for ICT exposure, secretarial services and learning, Sewing machines for skills development (Making reusable sanitary towels and textiles) and enterprise, a local bakery for enterprise and learning and a Community Hall for Community meetings and synergy. In 2006, a Multi-Purpose Facility was completed as a result of the DANICA Grant. Seated on a 3 acreage property that the Church of Uganda Luwero Diocese donated, this meets a 25 computer library, sewing machines and books indoor kitchen for learning, the Multi-purpose hall and a rain water harvest tank from which community learns to care for the environment through making model urban gardens. We are grateful to our donors and partners for the Mazzi Resource Center and would like to replicate this in all areas of our work.
