Photos In News
I am the second born of my family. Born March 26, 1986. Born to a deceased man John Kasujja and an HIV positive woman activist and HIV/AIDS councilor Joyce Kasujja, we are five boys and one girl that’s Kasujja Paddy (Benzy), Kasule Michael, Wasswa Charles, Nakato Moreen, Kawooya Brian and Kagwa Fred.
I studied secondary art and design at Kyambogo University and taught at my former school Maryland High School Masajja-Kibiira zone for three months and to another school nearby my home model high school.
But now I am a photographer working with SN EVENTS STUDIO in Kampala, Uganda. I love photography and sometimes I don’t miss the teaching as my professional but I still love teaching. As an artist I still do my art works and sell them to people.
I want to turn into a professional photographer but yet deeply at the back of my mind everyday I love helping since I was also helped to this stage where I am, this is why I created a youth group called Salaama Youth Information Center.
Uganda has the fastest growing population in East Africa and the leading district is Kampala. Being the centre or the main town and the biggest city in Uganda it has a lot of young men and women, and for the fact they are guided and follow the information that is before them that’s a main reason for their decision-making. And as a youth program Salaama Youth Information Center we indentified that there is a lack of information and the little information is not reached out to the lower young men and women in the communities. We are the young and home grown children who need to make a change and participate in our community life for which we will be causing a change to other young men and women in the country by conveying messages from sources, through outreaches in schools and community as well, social seminars and sensitization sessions. We create self awareness, mentorship of young men and women, children and grownups, improving and motivating skills, transformation of leadership since the young still have stronger ideas and abilities to transform Uganda and Africa. Motivate children and young leaders to strive, reach and archive their goals through empowerment and creation of opportunities through development of skills by having a healthy and well-informed group of youths in our villages, communities, Uganda and Africa as a whole piece.
That’s what I can do and what I do.

I am a born Ugandan by decent born a year before 1992, October 11th by both Ugandan parents Mr. Kutegana Nelson Charles and Mrs. Kutegana Betty. I am the fourth born child in the family of five children, where three are boys and two are girls.
I made sure I finalize with the levels of education in high school or secondary at Kasawo Senior Secondary School in Mukono district and in 2009 I joined Kampala International University as a Law student but could not continue with the course due to financial constraints.
I am computer literate with a certificate in Microsoft Word, I attained a certificate in Guidance and Counseling in 2012 and a Diploma in a training course for the Real Madrid Foundation Social Sport (football) in 2013 and currently a player and team captain of Sharing Youth football club. With that have been able to teach and counsel the young ones and my fellow youth in different places like in Njeru Secondary School Jinja district, currently am the acting chairperson (representative) on the committee of the sports in sharing center, in this post I share different ideas with elders and youths, this all means I still work with the people and associate with them despite the fact that I lost my job.
It bring a smile on my face always when have served or lead and people are happy especially the young and youths since I am one of them and grew up in the same state of hardship and look at it as the only way I can pack back, thus the say:
“Go to the people live with them, learn from them, work with them, start with what they have build on what they know and at the end when the work is done the people they will rejoice: we have done it ourselves.”
I am so happy LEAP came in at the right time when I had fallen down and I had no any other gratitude or chance apart from using LEAP TO LEAD UGANDA as the ladder to raise me up again.
