RCRC was founded by Richard Ssekiyaga in 2011, who used his own life experience to take steps to help others. His mother and father separated and Richard’s father took care of him the best he could. Sadly though at the early age of 5, his father passed away. As a result he ended up on the streets of the Kampala slums. With the help of many people in his life, Richard was able to rise up, get an education and is now living a successful life.
Keenly aware of the hardships street children face, he wanted to do something to help them and so RCRC was born.
