DonBosco Calm Namugongo was present at Namaliga for the silver jubilee celebration of DonBosco. A chosen group from Don Bosco-Calm enacted a poem, outlining the growth of Don Bosco – Namaliga as a young mother enthusiastic for her children. Namaliga a sleepy village in Bombo was woken up rudely from it slumber by the salesians when they first arrived in 1989 – youth who were loitering around were aroused and captured by Don Bosco‘s charisma .
The young mother in Namaliga having gained a foot hold brought forth another child – this time a salesian community in Kamuli with its vocation training centre –today a full fledged one with all activities and skills to tell the unemployed youth in the area that there is “a better tomorrow” for them .Namaliga mother was anxious to spread her wings further and this time they were given full control of CALM-now Don Bosco CALM to take care of youths who are at risk, the poor, the marginalized, those forgotten by the society. Namaliga a mother still wanted to go further a field and this time went to Atede village in Gulu town.
All the four salesians communities are well established but Namaliga is the mother of all Don Bosco institutions in Uganda and it will not stop with these four institutions , in time to come she will spread her wings to other parts of Uganda. May God our father take care of us all in Uganda. May Don Bosco‘s charisma be widely spread and his children be faithful to him.
