Teddy Naluwu, Kampala project coordinator in Uganda and former CFCA sponsored child.
I hope to transform others’ lives through my work with CFCA.
My name is Teddy Naluwu, and I am 31 years old. I have been a part of the CFCA family for more than 20 years, first as a sponsored child and later as an employee.
I have been working for CFCA for the past seven years, and I currently serve as Kampala project coordinator for Uganda, Africa.
Personally, I am a true believer of change. I have seen myself transform from a humble “country girl” to project coordinator of a sizeable project.
