Youth alive

 There is the Youth Alive group. This is a group that is part of an organization called Youth Alive Uganda which works with young people in the field of promoting life and values among youth. At Don Bosco – CALM, unlike other groups where the club is always started with an Education for Life workshop, the group was initiated just before the regional festivals in 2006. (NB: on an annual basis, Youth Alive Uganda organizes festivals in Singing, drama, poetry and fine art). Due to their interest, their commitment, dedication and talent, the children for the first time were able to be among the first three schools that took part in the festivals. This made them qualify for the National festivals. At the same National festivals, Don Bosco – CALM was the second over all and the children received their trophy handed to them by the then President of Uganda. The function was held at UMA Conference Hall – Lugogo. (New vision Uganda of 4th July 2006). Thanks to the then Director of the centre, Br. John Njuguna Ngigi SDB, who started the initiative, supported the group in all ways required and made sure that the children are very comfortable. Thanks also to the then patron of the group – Joseph Wandera, who took up the initiative, wrote the play, song, and poem and trained the children to be able to compete skillfully with groups from other schools. Progressively, the Youth Alive group at CALM has done its best and in 2007, 2008 and 2009, the group was always taking the first position in the Central Regional Youth Alive Festivals and for that matter, there is a trophy at the centre which is for keeps. This is a great achievement for the children who were once neglected, abandoned, abused, dejected, battered and deemed useless and hopeless.
