The centre is a major initiative in the heart of Africa and intends to provide the first stable source of the original teachings of the Buddha in Uganda. It aims to create an enduring home for the preservation and transmission of the Buddha's teachings by venerable and respectful masters established in Dhamma, and to continue to develop a landmark of Buddhist culture and teaching in Uganda and Africa as a whole.
As a step towards these objectives, a centre was originally established and built in the city of Kawempe in 2005. Today, the temple plays an important role where people can gather to receive and practice spiritual instruction, learn meditation, volunteer themselves for activities and other projects.
