Project 002 – Empower a Woman Start a Small Business
The idea of women micro-finance is simple yet empowering. Micro-finance is the extension of small loans to entrepreneurs who are too poor to qualify for traditional bank loans. The loans are typically short-term ( 12 months, six months or less), are not secured by collateral, and require repayment in weekly installments. Learn More about our Micro credit Program.

Project 003 – Help a Rural Village Get Access To Clean Water
Ssamba Foundation upgrades the water ponds into protected spring wells or constructs new clean water boreholes. The existing water places in many villages are in very poor condition. They are fed by ground water but without a confinement; groundwater mixes with surface flow that is contaminated by excreta from cattle, sheep and chicken that graze in the surrounding. The poor water quality leads to frequent diarrhea diseases that can be life-threatening especially for children. Learn More about our Borehole Drilling Program.

Project 006 – Cellphones for Community Representatives
Imagine trying to run a life-changing project without being able to talk with your colleagues. That’s the problem Community Representatives face in rural areas of Kyampisi – vast distances, no post, unaffordable purchase price on local incomes. This project aims to provide cellphones in strategic locations for coordinating Ssamba Foundation work in Uganda. You may wonder why smartphones? The internet capability provides the needed remote learning opportunities.
