Bridging A Gap Community Initiative (BAGCI) is a registered community-based organisation operating in Kajjansi town, 7 km on Kampala- Entebbe road. The idea of the organisation was conceived in 2005 and initiated by self selected members of the community who wanted to do something to improve the lives of vulnerable members of their community. The main activity for BAGCI is to provide breakfast to the most vulnerable children in the community so that they do not go to school hungry. This was determined as the best entry point to help guide BAGCI members into other needs of the community. A good nutritious breakfast not only allows the children to concentrate and stay in school, but to also realise their full potential. Members of BAGCI collectively come up with the money which buys the ingredients of the daily breakfast as well as the rent of the facility in which it is provided. Guardians & parents of the young people who access the BAGCI centre take turns to volunteer to cook the breakfast during the school term. A project Coordinator supervises the purchase of ingredients and cooking, makes sure all the children are registered every morning and provides a detailed report to members at the weekly meetings. The Coordinator is currently the only paid member of the project.
