At a youthful age in 2009, Samuel realized the appealing challenges that were facing his fellow young people, especially the children from disadvantaged families and young women living in slum areas of Kampala and in rural impoverished communities of Uganda.

Having worked and volunteered with a number of organizations, as a social, Samuel started dedicating most of his time, knowledge and enthusiasm on contributing to social change, envisioning the empowerment of the existence of underprivileged children, youth and women in the community in their quest to achieve a healthier, more thriving and happier life full of innovations.

In 2012 he initiated “Peculiar Child Care Support – PCCS” as a youth led nonprofit community organization to transform living conditions in Uganda’s poorest slum areas and rural communities by empowering the children, youth and young women through education, health and economic empowerment programs.

Since its establishment, PCCS’s primary focus has been supporting vulnerable children and youth. In June 2013 they established the first ever community nursery and primary school called (Kings Way Academy – Kisozi, Buddo) and later on (Blessed Kindergarten-Kawempe), Through these project schools, PCCS has educated and supported over 400 orphaned children and those from poverty affected families living at Kawempe slums and Kisozi rural village.
