The Uganda Foundation Story

The Uganda Foundation works to alleviate poverty in rural Uganda by empowering local community organisations to be self-sufficient through revenue generating, or cost saving projects. Our dream is to succeed in giving all our grass-root partner projects the means to become entirely self-reliant, enabling them to do the incredible work they do within their community without the reliance on external funding and grants.

We have set out to achieve this by offering people around the world the chance to connect and explore rural Africa, and the very projects that they have fundraised for. We believe that having the opportunity to meet, work alongside and make life-long friends with the very people who’s lives your donations are changing, helps those who give truly understand the power of their fundraising, and the impact it can have on incredible projects around the world.

Meet the team

The Uganda Foundation is made up of a combination of teams in the USA, UK, and Uganda, working together for the good of Uganda.

Our USA and UK teams are responsible for fundraising and introducing as much of the world as possible to the incredible grass-roots projects in Uganda. The team in Uganda is split into the operations team, who manage the day to day implementation and development of the charity in the country, and the Ugandan Board of Directors, who advise and govern all of our work to make sure we are constantly acting in the best interests of the communities.

As a registered charity, The Uganda Foundation has a Board of Trustees, who also work to forward our objectives and hold the charity to the highest level of account.

We are so proud to have such an incredible and dynamic group of people working towards our cause. See who they are below!
