Fr. Paolino Tomaino was assigned to Nyabushozi in 1999 on the invitation of His Excellency, the President of the Republic of Uganda. By that time; Greater Nyabushozi was still under Great Mbarara District which in 2005 was subdivided into 4 Districts, namely Mbarara, Isingiro, Ibanda and Kiruhura. Fr. Paolino remained the Parish Priest of Greater Nyabushozi for over 15 years.

He was the architecture of Nyabushozi Project in which he planned to implement:
Schools, Hospitals, Food Farming, Rain Water Harvest through digging Valley Dams and Construction of Concrete Water Tanks.

Finance independence through community SACCOs All the above were implemented.

He successfully began 5 Secondary Schools and 70 Primary Schools.
He constructed two Hospitals in Keibuza and Burunga. He was planning to construct another Hospital in Karengo (Ahakageti).

He made sure people started to do subsistence farming. His various projects attracted other tribes to Nyabushozi who are now fully settled.
Water Harvest is progressive and it is still being implemented.
Financial Independence is visible through Rushere SACCO.

All in all, we all agree that the INVITATION extended by His Excelency Gen. Yoweri Kaguta Museveni to the Catholic Church and specifically, the Comboni Missionaries to come and evangelize Nyabushozi was the best decision of the century.

Sedes Sapiensiea; Rushere People’s SACCO, Burunga and Kyeibuza Hospitals, Rugongi Dairy Farm and all the Primary Schools scattered all Greater Nyabushozi will greatly miss this great Apostle for Nyabushozi.

May the soul of Fr. Paolino Tomaino MCCJ, rest in eternal Peace!
