The Kazira Story...


Kazira Orphaned Children & Community Development started life as typical please help us type of charitable enterprise but after many years of waiting for things to happen and an opportunistic meeting with the founder of another public-spirited organisation, the James Allen Institute, the Kazira Children led by KOCCD founder Charles Kukunda decided enough was enough and that their futures would not be left to chance or hope for a moment longer and the Children and Community of Kazira would take control of their own destiny.

Creative enterprise is the name of the game and now every member of the Kazira Family contribute greatly and creatively to help generate revenue from the merchandise they have a direct hand in producing. Watch this space as next on the creative list is a fabulous hard back book published by JAI and on sale at Amazon containing a host of short stories and artwork from the children themselves and the fully illustrated story of KAZIRA CHILDREN.

Never have the words, "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime", been more appropriate or describe the ethos of a group of people more.

Although the Children are resilient, strong and determined it is still not an easy road for them and like any commercial enterprise in the modern world the support and patronage of good people like you is vital for the continued growth and progress of the enterprise and the ongoing well-being of the Children. Unfortunately other negatives challenge the Community such as HIV and AIDS and the simple unavailability of some basic resources we all take for granted.

The Children want to build their own Community Centre where they can go and play and work and eat and be EDUCATED, and, they want to build a connected 'Glamping Area' to welcome paying guests into their beautiful yet challenged region.

Every purchase you make of their T-shirts and other super art inspired items takes them closer and closer to their dreams and aspirations...so for your patronage and kindness, we thank you.

The Children of Kazira - a picture paints a thousand words...

The Region - Lake Bunyonyi, Kabale District, Uganda

Lake Bunyonyi is the second deepest lake in Africa after Lake Tanganyika. We would like to provide a 'safer' method of travelling around for the younger members of the Kazira community...especially during the rainy season! Once more thank you for your support and patronage.
