  OUR FOUNDING STORY

 

THE ANDTEX TRAINING AND CARE ORGANISATION (TATCO Uganda) is a Community Based Non- Profit making organization currently carrying out its community development activities in remote areas of Buikwe, Mukono and Wakiso districts in Uganda, East Africa respectively. It started as a two member group in Njeru Municipality-Buikwe District after seeing fellow community members in a very unpleasing state of poverty, Illiteracy, negative mindset towards development and lack of hope for their future. The community composed of poor nurturing of the infants, less education for the children due to the poor conditions of the few available schools, many children had even no access to education, unskilled youths and women, no care for the vulnerable and aged persons in the community.

To transform the community, the two members i.e. KATO ANDREW and NABBANJA DEZIRANTA started The Andtex Training and Care Organization (TATCO Uganda) and registered it as a CBO in November, 2013 under Buikwe District Civil Society guidelines whose objectives were.

  1. To provide VOCATIONAL SKILLS training to grouped youths and women
  2. Advocate for the rights and Start up Livelihood support projects to support Women and Young Mothers.
  3. To provide Early Child Development programmes to the infants
  4. Create and provide a conducive primary education learning environment that favours children to be in schools.
  5. Provide care and support to vulnerable and aged persons in any possible ways and in reach of the organization
  6. To positively change the mindset of people in the society.

In collaboration with Local government, peer organizations, individuals, companies, religious societies, political leaders, volunteers of like minds, International donors, etc. joined us and are stilled called upon to be part of our community transformation. Some of our so far achievements can be found under WHAT WE DO

A MESSAGE FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Over the years, TATCO Uganda has continued to establish strong linkages with districts and local communities especially working with Local Government, NGOs and CBOs with the main objective of transforming the communities that we live in, creating a sense of responsibility and social accountability on the side of duty bearers and rights holders. As a result of the different interventions by TATCO Uganda i.e Youth skilling and empowerment, Children Education, Community Sensitization workshops, we have seen local communities demand for action from relevant authorities both at district and Sub county level. Networks have been born and, actions taken at the different levels, inspite of the challenges of lack of funds, information and ignorance of civic rights among the residents. At institutional level, TATCO Uganda continues to grow from strength to strength. I would like to sincerely appreciate members of TATCO Uganda and the communities that we operate in, allies at International, National and district level and any other persons or groups that have been with us and hope for your continued support. All the above steps taken could not have been possible without your support, collaboration, network, partnership and team spirit. Last, but not least, special thanks go to my mother Nabbanja Deziranta who has helped me so much in mobilizing the communities and encouraging me to never loss hope if it comes to community development.
“Skills Development and Care we reach”
