“On January 20, 1961, US President John F. Kennedy gave an inaugural address that inspired Americans to see the importance of civic action and public service with the historic words, “Ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country”.
on 9th October, 1962, Uganda attained her independence from colonial rule, and plunged into decades of political, social and economic upheaval. Uganda now is a mixture of an old generation that saw the upheaval and are just happy to be alive under a semblance of stable government, a middle aged generation that has thrived on the instability and created systems in which a few benefit at the expense of the many and a young generation that is surviving by the skin of its teeth outside of government intervention.
We pledge to return Back to the Basics of reweaving the Ugandan moral and social fabric to establish a foundation on which all Ugandans can stand to build a vibrant economy and a bright future. With focused and timely interventions in the pillars of Faith, Family, Education, Economy, Media, Arts and Sport and Leadership, we will initiate transformation that will spread throughout the 56 tribes of our nation.
