Bududa Child Development Centre has been in existence since November 1997. It is located in a village setting, in a moderately populated community beneath Mount Elgon. Most houses there are built out of earth and wattle, with poor sanitation. Education standards are low, with high rates of illiteracy, school drop-outs, early pregnancy and motherhood, and high prevalence of malaria and HIV/AIDS amongst caregivers and children. The Centre exists to nurture the children in the community spiritually, physically, economically and socio-emotionally, enabling them to become responsible, Christian adults. It aims at holistic child development in the community. We recognise the holistic nature of children and we seek to naturally integrate this ministry in the same way that it is integrated in a ...

BUCINET was formed as a result of the need to create a platform through which civil society organisations operating in Bugisu sub-region could contribute to public policy through advocacy, networking, and partnership and information exchange for sustainable development.This was as a result of domestic violence, human rights violation, conflicts and the flow of Internally Displaced People (IDPs) from Teso, Karamoja fugitive of those wars. At that time, many IDPs came to Bugisu to take refugee. As a result, there was too much pressure on resources as everybody fought for a share. This created tension among indigenous people around.
