A Cause to Celebrate
Celebrating our community collaborations and partnerships is the focus of our bi-annual event, Okuyamba Fest. “Okuyamba” is the Lugandan word meaning “to help.” The event began in 2012 to help raise funds for PCAU’s work. It was a yearly celebration until 2018 when it became a bi-yearly event to coincide with PCAU’s exchange visit to the U.S. It features international foods and beverages as well as a silent auction of Ugandan/African arts and craft items. Proceeds from the event benefit one of PCAU’s signature programs such as the Road to Hope program, the PCAU building fund, general operating expenses, etc.
Past events have featured live entertainment like the Uzima dance group, the local premiere of The Road to Hope documentary, and keynote speaker Brandi Milloy of PopSugar.
