Uganda Catholic Worker Community

"Witnessing to Christ through faith in action."

The Uganda Catholic Worker was founded on February 14, 2011 by Michael Sekitoleko and two friends. In the years since then, the community has conducted Peace and Nonviolence training at hundreds of schools; provided temporary shelter (and the dignity of a loving community) to hundreds of unhoused Ugandans; helped to de-escalate conflicts; and intervened to protect the rights of villagers threatened with removal from their land.

Over the years, the Uganda Catholic Worker has also moved locations six times as a result of rising rents. Now, with the help of other Catholic Worker communities, the Uganda Catholic Worker is pursuing a two-stage plan to ensure its future sustainability and to make it a model for the development of other Catholic Worker communities in Africa. Stage one involves purchasing a house in Kampala. Stage two sees us purchasing a 100-acre farm that will provide housing and work to those newly released from prison to help them make a new start. The farm will also produce food for distribution to the poor as well as a small cemetery for those unable to afford burial.

You can donate to the first stage of our plan at the GoFundMe set up by Jim Dowling of Peter Maurin Farm (Australia). Donate here.
