Bajjo Project

Bajjo Overview

In 2008 a small team from the UK established the first Uganda Creates project in Bajjo; a small village in the Luwero District of Uganda.

Being the first project site means that it hold a special place in the hearts of wannabeamazin staff. The change in the village since 2008 has been quite remarkable with the introduction of mains water for a handful of residents and the development of the small path that runs through the village into a single lane track that cars (with good suspension!) can drive down.

The project is based at a newly opened community primary school and is now being run by a local team headed by Joshua, the Resource Centre Manager and one of our first Resource Centre members back in 2008.

In Focus: Computer Training

The recreation department here in Bajjo is amazing, and as a community we are happy with the facilities in our community.

In particular I enjoy the health programme provided with the tournament and the library facilities; but the introduction of the computer programme here is really amazing. It makes us feel like we are Kampala youth. The skills are really good we look forward to having more teachers and more computers for the programme.”
