About Kibigare

The slum is the home of the pupils in St. Martin‘s Kibagare Primary School.

In this slum there is vicious cycle of poverty. The people who live here most of them are not employed, some of them are alcoholics, drug addicts, commercial sex workers, young girls get early pregnancies, some of them are infected with HIV, some have died leaving orphans with child headed families and with grandparents.

Some people are idle and some end up by becoming criminals. Some work as casual labourers while others do small scale businesses whereby they earn very little money.

From June this year a small project called Nilinde Nijinjenge was rolled out to empower the households on how to manage small scale business in order to make them self reliant. The project also aims at prevention of the root causes of poverty by giving awareness on drug abuse, HIV and AIDs and prevention of Alcoholism.

It is my hope that this project will help to reduce poverty.
