The Nabagereka of Buganda, Her Royal Highness Sylvia Nagginda, initiated Ekisaakaate, a children’s holiday camp, in 2007.

The purpose of the camp is to nurture respect and appreciation for culture and heritage, which is especially important in today’s modern society. Children are trained in etiquette, craftsmanship, games, dance and home baking as part of Ganda culture.
