P.O Box 8386, Kampala,Bukoggolwa , Gombe Town Council, Butambala district,

A group of volunteer members started the organisation out of concern for the challenges in the community that required a lasting solution. Their first activities were mainly to plan and then mobilise community members to address the needs of the growing number of orphans due to HIV/AIDS in the late 80s and 90s. We are currently reconstructing Bukoggolwa secondary school which was destroyed by the hailstorm in 2011 to support the community. BWOCC has also initiated educational agricultural and health projects in Mpigi and Butambala districts. However, our members are increasingly in need of building their capacities in terms of skills and structures. BWOCC thanks Uganda National NGO Forum for the support in networking and capacity building.
