Their Community: The Country
Kisubi is a village rich with history, located between Entebbe and the capitol city of Kampala. The land area encompasses twenty (20) square kilometers currently housing a Nursery School, Youth Vocational School, a Retirement home with the will to include programs promoting initiatives for Women, an Orphan fund and housing, and much needed basic services that would have meaningful impact. With extreme limits on resources they require help for housing orphans, agricultural farming and sustainability as they depend on what they grow and harvest. Unfortunately with uncertainty with climate considerations and lack of knowledge of their Ecosystem; they are not in position to fully take advantage of their available resources. With an ecosystem pilot program, Kisubi can become more sufficient with priorities to include addressing basic needs like hot and running water and distribution of food to the impoverished.

The purpose of this organization is to create a successful pilot project plan that can be mirrored for other counties identified with similar variables to thrive with a progressive nature.
History of Uganda
Like no other country, Uganda represents the changing faces of recent African history. Behind the people's optimism and the country's beauties still lie the horrors and ruins of a gloomy past. However, Uganda is more than worth the attention - not just because of its breathtaking landscape and its incredible bio-diversity. It is simply moving to see how these loving people overcome the challenges of the past and how they fight for a normal, settled life.
Visitors are still few and therefore especially welcome. The country is generally peaceful and maintains complete security. Uganda offers stunning vistas with green rolling hills, snowcapped mountains, rainforests, majestic rivers and massive lakes with secret Islands within. There are also a number of outstanding national parks for tourist safari experiences and up front and personal encounter with animals for which Africa is renowned. Uganda's authentic beauty, wildlife diversity and friendly people justify its reputation as "The Pearl of Africa".
The country called Uganda came in existence when, the announcement of its creation and status was published in the London Gazette in 1894.” Got to love those Brits!” We acknowledge and recognize that the formation of Uganda was not a result of a gradual process of national integration. The rich history of Uganda combines centralized kingdoms and seminary states brought together with no logic other than imperial needs. Early on, the political climate had little unity; the sparsely populated regions in the north had little affinity with the “privileged” Buganda culture in the south. This began when the British, built up the nation-state of Uganda, but for successive independent governments to date. The people were challenged as the artificial creation of Uganda has been an ethnic one. The population hovers some 24.4 million, with a majority of the people, living South and West of the Nile. Certain groups in Eastern Uganda are still Bantu-speaking today as Uganda’s isolated communities continue to speak many different dialects. This diverse country has adopted English as their official language but, much education is needed to bring all people together through teaching to the youth because of ethnically, linguistically and cultural differences. Regardless of the original formation of the state of Uganda, the identity of the nation has taken shape and there is opportunity to support the development of consciousness for the youth and all peoples to identify as Ugandans.
Uganda is strategically positioned along the central African Rift Valley, provides a favorable climate at an altitude of 1,200 meters and above, and the reliable rainfall around the Lake Victoria Basin has made it attractive to African cultivators and herders as early as the 4th century BC. Core samples from the bottom of Lake Victoria have revealed that dense rainforest once covered the land around the lake. Centuries of cultivation removed almost all the original tree cover.
The cultivators who gradually cleared the forest were Bantu, whose expansion gradually took over most of Africa south of the Sahara Desert. Their knowledge of agriculture and use of iron forging technology permitted them to clear the land and feed large numbers of settlers. By the 4th century BC, the Bantu-speaking metallurgists were perfecting iron smelting to produce medium grade carbon steel in pre-heated forced draft furnaces--a technique not achieved in Europe until the Siemens process of the 19th century. Although most of these developments were taking place southwest of modern Ugandan boundaries, iron was mined and smelted in many parts of the country not long afterward.
The opportunity to attract visitors and grow tourism is apparent as Uganda offers the natural riches of Lakes, the origin of the Nile, the Equator, abundance of wildlife as well as progressive cities of Kampala and Entebbe along with National Sport participation.
