Events for Namuwongo is an innovative partnership of people and companies who have come together to support this community by not only adopting them, but caring for this community to create real change for those who live there. Working together as a team, Events for Namuwongo along with different charities, supporters, the local university, local leaders and the wider community will come together and work in a united way to deliver the change needed by this community.
Event industry leaders got together at the Global Event Summit in London, in September, and decided to work together to create an industry cause.
Events for Namuwongo has adopted Namuwongo, a slum community of approximately 20,000 people on the edge of Kampala in Uganda. The community suffers from poverty, polluted water, lack of sanitation and education, and has been ravaged by AIDS and neighbouring wars.
It is also a community of hard working, energetic people, striving to solve their own problems and improve their own lives.
