about

We drew our inspiration from two key people:

Dorcas :The woman named Dorcas whose dress making touched the hearts of all. The introduction of this woman named Tabitha which was interpreted as Dorcas was that she was full of good works and alms deeds. This tells us that she was a woman who worked assiduously to the extent that she grabbed the attention of all the widows. She earned a reputation for her acts of charity to the widows and to the poor. Her hard work showed in the coats and garments which she made while she was with the women and caring for the orphans. She was reported to have died. Dorcas’ dead body was washed and placed in the upper room. However, God so had it that Peter was in Lydda. The women sent and implored Peter to come and pray for Dorcas. When he came they showed him the work Dorcas had done while she was alive. What we may learn from this woman and her effort was that she discovered her purpose and not only that; she used all that she had to accomplish her purpose including her strength, wisdom, and finances to carry out her God given purpose. She did not just seek for leadership position to be known and be respected for her wealth. But that the women and the orphans and the poor put her in her place. She became their leader and truly cared and loved them and was highly respected too

In turn as part of her reward, her good work created a second chance for her in life as she was brought back to life after Peter’s prayer. The women too were not willing to release her to Jesus. Dorcas probably did not know that her good work will yield her godly consequences, but she just did it anyways to the Glory of the Lord. Dorcas’ acts of good work are really a good example for us all to emulate. This is one of the rare cases of Jesus Christ releasing someone back to earth from heaven. The scripture clearly teaches us that “to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord”. We should remember to state this important fact that this woman captured the hearts and attention of all the women, the orphans and the poor. We must understand that for her to be able to capture their attention, she showed love to the people she came across. She loved them no matter their status, their position or who they were. She realized that whether they were widows or orphans or poor these people were God’s children and as a result they deserved loving care just as other people of great status and wealth. She obviously showed them love and they saw it and was received by all. One of the virtues that we all need is that hard work and good work pays in this life and even in the life to come. Her resurrection created a revival in Joppa and many people were saved. This was because many people who heard previously that Dorcas was dead soon discovered that she had been raised to life again.

Mzee.Eriya Begumisa: Mzee Eriya was born in Rweikiniro Sub County, in Rwampala County then Ankole District in the year 1910. His mother was Butirigiri & father was Babigumira. The family shifted from Rwikiniro to Ntungamo Sub County where he grew up.
In the year 1926, he escaped from his home & went to another village called Karagwe in search of school, because that is where there was a church & teaching, writing and reading were available. He was baptized on 1st JAN 1928 by Rev. Yoeri Zzake. He was confirmed in the Christian church in April 1929 by Rt. Rev. Wills then Bishop of Uganda. He studied in Elementary Vernacular School (EVS) in 1930. He then went to a tertiary college where he qualified in the year 1934; he started a school Bugamba, which is now known as Bugamba Senior Secondary School in Rwampala County. In 1966, he retired from teaching and joined politics. In 1969, he retired from active politics and migrated from Bugamba to Rwenjeru on 16th April 1970.

The Birth of his Community Camp site Vision.

In 1969, Mzee Begumisa retired from active politics and migrated to Rwenjeru. Initially this community was part of Lake Mburo Natural Park but was later encroached on by the traditional pastoralists who settled in the surrounding communities. As Mzee Begumisa started to settle in his new acquired home, he realized that the future of wildlife in this game park was at a big risk of extinction due to the constant hunting of animals that was carried out by the people who used to kill the animals for meat and other traditional purposes. He later developed a big Vision of conserving nature, wildlife and environment after realizing the effects of poaching and environmental degradation. He started by reserving his 21 hectares of land to be transformed into a community camp site where conservation programs could be conducted in the future.
In 1995 together with his beloved wife late Kangyeya Agnes born 1913, he fulfilled his dream and started Rwenjeru Community Campsite (RCC) which was later registered in 2005. It was unfortunate he lost his beloved one in July 2016 with whom they had lived together in marriage for 79 years and they had started the campsite. Before the demise of his wife the president of Republic of Uganda hosted the Ugandan long lived couple in marriage, in April-May 2015 for having been faithful to each other for 79 years till death did them part.
Due to the slow progress and publicity of the camp site, the number of guests, volunteers and travelers visiting this beautiful community has been very low until 2016 when family heads of Rwenjeru community established a collaboration with Great Trekkers Safaris a community based travel agency which is now supporting the camp site through promotion of sustainable and fair tourism projects within the communities of Rwenjeru.
When we met this great man of God I called prophet he simply said come and build science centers and hospitals in his land. With this in mind we set our hearts on finishing up the vision that he has started. As in all things we began with Pastor Timothy going to the village to meet with him and the family and praying and discussing with this great man of God. After that we set out to organize a crusade and we cannot limit God he would do next as he keeps doing great things in the ministry.

Work-Learning-Service/Work College

Goals and purposes

Following a Godly model showed to us in the person of Dorcas, we gladly put together a work-learning-service program that we believe will help engage the youth, the widows and the orphans. The details of the program are as follows:
The work-learning-service will use work college to prepare graduate for their career compared with their peers from private and public schools. We believe that work college will offer a work-learning-service option that teaches critical thinking, problem solving, taking initiative, resourcefulness, teamwork, effective communication, decision making, respect for others, leadership, responsibility, appreciation for diversity, research skills, accountability, professionalism, time management, christian leadership, respect for constructive criticism and lifelong learning.
