Organization Description

Its purpose is to Equip, Provide and Promote Practical Skills Training and Children's Education in our local communities. We carry out also community senstization and training workshops on agriculture, livelihood support programs and HIV/AIDS counselling. Kato Andrew and Nabbanja Deziranta are the original founders and the continuing Directors of the Organisation.

History and Objectives

TATCO-Uganda was founded in 2010, in order to reduce the number of unskilled youths and women, change the agricultural practices, reduce the environment degradation and reduce unemployment and poverty in Wakiso and Buikwe district community. The formation of the community group was after some observation and commitment of members on board who identified such problems in our community.

TATCO-Uganda’s founding members overwhelmingly agreed on the need to form an oragnisation where skilled and experienced persons from within the community, agencies, government and any other volunteer elsewhere come and employ their skills to organized groups of people in our community and train them, and sensitize them in the identified fields.

TATCO- Uganda’s main objectives are to train people in practical skills, environment conservation practices, agriculture modernization practices and women and youth livelihood projects development and our goals include:

• Increased practical skilled persons in the community
• More agricultural out.
• Improved conservation awareness in the community.
• Reduced unemployment and poverty
• Community cooperation and unit

With the partnership with sister agencies which understand our goals, government and local leaders we hope to change the world.

TATCO-Uganda is entirely managed/run by the community. The Annual General Meeting elects a committee to represent the community. Membership subscriptions are ploughed into community projects such as agricultural farms, livelihood projects. Most of the staffs are from the community except in cases where there is a need for special skills.

We have brought some change to our community where we have started up demonstration farms where farmers learn better ways f agriculture, identified youths who are enrolled in the vocation schools around for practical skills trainings, organized workshops for counseling and sensitization of the community.

However we have more programmes but we have less human resource and resources in form of materials and funds to carry out.
