Who We Are

Ssamba Foundation is a registered non-profit community development organization founded by Rtn. Isaac Ssamba in Mukono, Uganda. Operating in Mukono district, we manage a wide range of sustainable development and humanitarian projects since 2006.

Ssamba Foundation provides long-term sustainable solutions to problems in rural Uganda which are mainly caused by poverty. Poverty degrades the societal status of the people, gives birth to many social problems, and puts the poor people in a disadvantaged position. Together with the communities we serve we have identified key areas where change needs to have a positive impact if poverty is to become a challenge of the past.

Isaac Ssamba’s mission of helping those least able to help themselves started at the age of 14 and at the age of 19, he established a non-government, not-for-profit organization which designs and conducts programs which contribute to the welfare and social productivity of disadvantaged individuals and communities with an emphasis on children, youth and women.

Ssamba Foundation addresses some of the most pervasive problems in rural Uganda, including poor healthcare systems, hunger, poor education system, access to clean drinking water, environment degradation and extreme poverty.

In addition, the foundation focuses on empowering the youth of Uganda through leadership and skills training.  The organization is founded on the principles that our common humanity is more important than our individual differences.  We therefore operate on a non-political, non-denominational, and non-sectarian basis, welcoming each and every Ugandan in need.
