Aug 2013 – Current Community Volunteer, Wellness Foundation for Children
I do not suppose that you have ever gone hungry in your life.
Have you ever been left alone by parents who passed away?
Ever wondered what happens to the children we leave behind, the ones we forget about?
Do you know that there are many parents who would participate in a project that allows them to care for their families and care for children who do not have their own parents?
Perhaps you have wondered about how you could do your own part to bring into the world some changes…just you.
Welcome to the Wellness Foundation for Children. All financial statements are available upon request.
The Power of Many starts with the Power of One. You are that one.
I am an administrator on several boards on Face Book. All related to Uganda and our needs there. You can vist them by searching for my marriage name “Martha Leah Zesaguli”. My maiden name “Martha Leah Nangalama” is still attached to most of what I have done which you can find on the internet using Google.
I am fluent in English and French and prefer most communication to be in English but will also communicate in French. I speak various African languages. I am a Canadian Citizen with origins from Uganda (also lived in Kenya). I am not here to ask you for a job but rather to tell you that you might need me.

2005 - Current Owner, Nangalama Enterprises Inc. (a Canadian Consulting Company)
Acknowledging that the world economy is being shaped by entrepreneurs and innovation, it is crucial that our young people apply nothing short of the best of themselves.
People who have lost their jobs must become very creative and be flexible in order to re-enter the workforce and earn a living.

Nangalama Enterprises assists with legal issues (research and recommending legal firms), deals with Revenue Canada (Taxation and Tax Recovery) as well as advising on IT Solutions. Best Business Practices are the key to success for any business as well as innovative ways to generate and increase efficiencies while at the same time participating in one’s community.

1995 – 2003 Imperial Oil Ltd. Toronto, Ontario
Project Analyst and Data Management Consultant
Data Management Consulting (Data Modelling, training other IT members, and Intelligent Information Extraction or think about Corporate Information Factory). In 2002, I informed my manager that Data Management would be the hottest IT area in the future given how much data we were collecting then. I was not wrong and now I know that the best investment any company can have is a good Data Base Administrator (DBA).
Worked with Vendors to implement various applications for the corporate departments (Treasurer, Comptrollers departments, Law, Charitable Foundation, Customer Service, etc.).
Wrote in house applications for various departments when I actually used to write computer code.
Coached Trained and Mentored a range of new Information Technology (IT) hires into various jobs as well as experienced mainframe programmers who had to move into the Client Server environment. Imperial Oil Ltd. and Exxonmobil had always invested in training me on the highest IT systems. I was in turn obliged to remain with both companies and rewrite courses and train other IT people in both companies.
Writing a Pilot application to automate Provincial Tax Payments which was approved and then implemented all across Canada with me being the lead IT analyst. I was offered jobs by other Oil companies which were being forced to do it “my way” but I never took any of their offers. I was loyal. I was also offered jobs by the training institutes. I never took them. Loyalty is something that few know, but it is crucial. I have not worked for the Oil companies since 2007 but I am still on their payroll.

Dedicated Junior Achievement (JA) volunteer (Economics of Staying in School).
I love to see young people realize what the value of a good education is. Mind you, I challenge them to prove to me that they have no idols. I have been surprised sometimes, one girl wanted to have horses, a ranch and nice cars. I asked her how she intended to pay for it and she replied that her parents would give her money or she would just marry rich. What an amazing realisation…you mean to tell me I could have married rich. But wait, another kid told me he was going to become a basketball star. So I had the audacity of telling him that since he could not do his Maths, it was unlikely that he would keep any money. Of course afterwards, I stormed into the teacher’s office for that grade and told him his kids were illiterate. The school then always asked me to teach JA.
Anglican Parish of Shediac
Vestry member of the Parish and Chair of the Youth Committee and the Parish Mission Projects
I used to attend all meetings on my first 2 yr run and on my second 2yr run, I just plain refused to attend any meetings. So next, my priest visits me (he is a wonderful man) and asks me to accept joining the Parish Think Tank. Right up my alley…I can give ideas, I can think, but please, stop me from trying to work on things which involve late night meetings when I have 2 small children to put to bed.
Helping the Parish to set up a daycare – that was something. The government of New Brunswick (NB) Canada has an incredible amount of regulations to protect children and elder people. I am glad to say we got our licence and now the Parish has a long waiting list.
