POPE’S UGANDAN VISITATION PROGRAM INVOLVEMENT- 25th November 2015:
The Pope visited Uganda , the visit which involved meeting the poor communities, Youth, Religious Leaders, Christians and Elderly. The visit was purely on Peace and Community Development Initiatives. Twekembe Development Association having been contacted by CARITAS Uganda (one of the hosts), did provide entertainment to the visiting pope along Entebbe road as he was coming from the Airport. The Youth Music, Dance and Drama Performers Group was involved and this is in line with our goal of empowering youth through performing arts, vocational training and economic activities. The performance demonstrated our association’s success at both National and International Level since the people who matched the show/entertainment were from different countries.
