Background:

Young Catholic Workers (YCWM) –Mbuya was formed on the 22 April 2009 and officially launched on May 1, 2009, as a Youth desk or seedbed of Catholic Workers Movement (CWM) - Mbuya which is part of CWM- Uganda. YCWM is dedicated to promoting and improving the health, educational attainment, human welfare, and opportunities for Youths, Families and Communities in Mbuya and Nakawa Division

The Movement is affiliated to the World Movement of Christian Workers (WMCW) where it is registered as a member organization and has been represented in the International Conferences of the WMCW since its inception in Uganda. It also partners with KAB-Germany and Weltnotwerk.

The Movement has structures which begin from the Parishes to the Dioceses and then to the National. We are privileged to work under the Catholic Church wherever we are located and the National office is located in Lubaga – Pope John Paul II Memorial Cathedral Hall.

The organization promotes the interests of all those who rely upon their work or for their income, whether formally or informally. Catholic Workers’ Movement is a movement of formation through action. The member movements are committed to raising awareness through permanent education. To reach this goal, the movement applies the «-see-judge-act method», also called the «Review of life».
