I reached in the morning and found he had already died at night. That is how I missed the last words of my beloved father. The preparations were then made for the burial and that marked the end of my father in my life. That happened in 1999. This year remained etched in my mind up to now.

Turkeys fighting at CALM yesterday evening and children watching happily
Turkeys are some of the birds that dwell in CALM. This year the community has purchased many to equip the poultry. Every evening after school children at CALM get involved into co-curricula activities such as music, drama, football, rugby, etc.
Sometimes surviving in the village becomes easy due to the plenty of fruits like jack fruits, sugarcane, guavas, mangoes etc. Since my mother was taking a long time to visit me I grew up knowing my grandmother as my mother and I was calling her “mother”.

The mission of CALM is to rescue, to rehabilitate and to reintegrate into society, destitute children through provision of education basic needs and social cultural activities for a bright future. With this in mind, children at CALM have decided to join acrobatics in order to fulfill their dreams at the highest maximum level.
Why my parents never stayed with me is not that they never loved me. It was because of the situation and the environment that could not support my staying with them. We lived in a slam place in Kampala called Nsambya Kevina in a small single room house of any Ghetto or slam place you can think of.

The story begins on 27/Nov/1995. I was born to the late Kasule Benedicto and the late Nalubowa Florence. My father died in 1999 when I was four years old and my mother passed on in 2012 when I was in Primary Form Two. Until the time my parents both passed away, I had not even spent a year with them, except the time when I was still a baby.

Children and life mission (CALM) Namugongo receives 3 new members from south Sudan for the first time by names of Angelo Gore, Robert Sanya, and Amos Sabit. This was on 4/03/2017. For our home to receive members from outside Uganda is a great opportunity most especially from South Sudan where there are political instabilities. We really feel so privileged by God to extend our mission out of Uganda.
