Nalubaale Social Center (NSC) is a registered non-profit organization in Uganda with the responsible body based in Germany (mt:28 gGmBH), started in 2019 by Rhiter and Jonas Wallisser.

Uganda is a land-locked East African country with enviable deep passion for sports.

With the current population of over 40,000,000 people, there are visible struggles to make ends meet for more than a third of the residents.

Sports is one means clearly envisaged as a short-cut of bridging rich-poor gap.

Ironically, talented sports personalities spread all over the 135 districts find one common handicap; affluent sports facilities.

Football players, netballers, runners, boxers, cricketers, basketballers, volleyballers, handballers, rugby as well as hockey players, and the like all chorus one problem – lack of good equipment and sport facilities.

It is upon this firm background that Nalubaale Social Center (NSC) Limited Bujuko put in place state-of-art sports grounds (for football) and a basketball court.

The center is primarily to serve the interests of the community with target groups being all sports people; children, youths and adults through football ministry, education and vocational training, among others.

“We want to help people improve their life situation in a holistic and sustainable way. Holistic; to help practically where people are ready to get involved with dedication and commitment. The needs of the individual are our main focus” Wallisser notes.

With the grounds and courts already in use by the people and sports grounds at a pocket friendly cost, the future prospect ranks to build stands to host around 3000 fans.

“Nalubaale Social Center also yearns to build our own academy for developing talents.” Wallisser adds.

“In the life of a professional athlete, small things decide between victory or defeat. At the end of the day, football is just a game, but the commitment is both on and off the pitch. That is why I am happy to be part of Nalubaale Social Center and to support the project. Our joint efforts can make the difference” Uduokhai, who was born to a Nigerian father and Germany mother reveals.

The center hosts holiday programs for children. They use the grounds and court for hire to schools, teams and other organized groups.
