OCIA (Orphan Children in Action) with its headquarters in Nansana, near Uganda's capital Kampala, was founded by Enock, the sponsored child of our 2nd chairwoman Kaja. As a half-orphan, Enock benefited greatly from Kaja's support and thus had the opportunity to go to school and complete a bachelor's degree in computer science. Today he says that it gave him a lot of strength to know that there is someone who cares about him. In order to convey this feeling to other orphans in Uganda, to give them access to education and a future without poverty, he founded OCIA.
The core team at OCIA currently consists of Enock and Immaculate. Together they are working flat out on building the aid organization. They are supported by several voluntary helpers. 30 orphans have already been registered and are supposed to attend school through the funding of OCIA and receive adequate basic care, e.g. health care, clothing, school books, etc.
Mizizi currently supports mainly financially and in project management. Together we work out time and budget plans in order to develop a sustainable, realistically feasible concept for the young aid organization. Our ideas sre beeing reflected by Enock and Immaculate and they then decide together how they want to put the ideas into practice.
