Our being based in Africa and not eligible for tax-deduction in foreign countries status makes it difficult to find long term financial partners. We invite you to support us with a one-time gift, or regular giving. We also welcome developing short-term and long-term relationships with like-minded donors. Your investment makes a huge difference in our vulnerable people’s lives.
We are a not-for-profit charity. Donations to Ssamba Foundation are not tax-deductible.
Three easy ways to donate:
- Send Payment to Our Bank Account in Uganda through wise.com
- Donate through flutterwave Account
- Donations can be made through our ambassadors scattered across the world,
If none of these methods suit you, please contact us at: email@example.com to arrange an alternative method.
Unlike many big charities, we guarantee that 100% of your donation goes directly to funding our project work. We do not take a percentage for admin, overheads or travel, which makes the way we work unique. You can also choose which project you wish to fund, and we will update you with news of how your money is making a difference every step of the way.
Taking on a charity challenge in the name of Ssamba Foundation is a brilliant way to support us. You can get fit, challenge yourself and help a great cause at the same time. If you are taking on a challenge such as climbing Rwenzori, why not directly support some of Uganda’s poorest people by fundraising for Ssamba Foundation?
Or you could hold your own fundraising event – a coffee morning selling Ugandan coffee perhaps, or a cake stand at a local event showcasing your baking skills. The list is endless! Get in touch to find out more! You can, if you wish, support a specific project, cause or community. Get in touch and we can discuss suitable projects.
Donating a Laptop or digital camera
If you have any unwanted tablets, cameras or laptops tucked away somewhere, we can put them to great use by delivering them to one of our projects. They will be used in our various photography, videography and computer classes in rural communities.
Connecting with Schools
If you are a teacher, why not think about linking your school with one in Uganda? It’s a great way to help your students broaden their education, while directly supporting schoolchildren in the poorest areas of Uganda. With our first-hand experience of schools across the country, we are well placed to help you select the one that is a perfect fit for your children.

Project 001 – Sponsor an Orphan or Vulnerable Child’s Education
Your sponsorship will begin upon receipt of your first sponsorship donation. Please allow four to six weeks to hear from your godchild. You can make a wonderful difference in the life of a child by becoming a godparent to a child supported by Ssamba Foundation. It’s also a wonderful way to learn more about the daily activities of our children. You will receive regular updates on your godchild’s academic and social progress, a Christmas card with a new photo every year and replies to all of your letters. See what a difference you can make in the life of a child. Learn More about our Godparent Program.
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 004 – Buy Two Goats for a Widow or Child Headed Family
The project is called Goats for Family Improvement Program and intends to facilitate economic sustainability for vulnerable women (especially widows) and vulnerable children (especially in child headed families) in the most vulnerable communities of Kyampisi Subcounty. This project is designed to provide an income generating opportunity specifically for vulnerable children, women and their families who are affected by poverty and unable to support themselves by ensuring self-sustainability and guaranteeing that they are in a position to meet their basic needs (i.e. food, water, shelter) and support their school dues like school fees and medical treatment. Learn more about our Goats Program.
Project 005 – Office Laptop Computers
In order for the Project Managers to have a reliable and good means of communication, they need to replace the old laptops that are not working as they should. We need good working laptops to help us do meaningful work.
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.
