About our charity
The Bumba Foundation aims to provide the opportunities to inspire and develop young people and communities to take positive action. Through youth based projects the Bumba Foundation will provide the opportunity for young people to develop their skills to support community resilience and reduce vulnerability. The Bumba Foundation will develop projects through partnerships, which will enable young people to take positive action through education to support communities. The projects will be time limited but focused on education and developing community cohesion. The projects will develop leadership skills and provide young people with the opportunity to make a positive contribution to society.
Why The Bumba Foundation
The Bumba Foundation was set up to provide access to education and create opportunities to inspire and develop young people and their communities, through sustainable educational projects. Through the creation of our community schools and vocational centres, it allows young people regardless of their situation to gain the best academic and vocational education, appropriate for their needs.
“Thank you for making the time to visit our website and explore how a group of friends who wanted to create smiles for young people in Uganda, also set up a charity, schools and vocational centres. The support of our friends, sponsors and donors, have allowed us make it all possible and make the smiles a reality”.

Bumba Foundation Schools / Community Ownership
The Bumba Foundation schools are successfully run by community management teams and supported by appropriate business processes, which are continuously developed to ensure the local needs are managed, there is accountability and the running of the schools is sustainable. The community management team ensures there is a continuous programme of research and monitoring which is also supported by our programme of evaluation visits. In 2013 we conducted a research project with the community, the local and national government in Uganda, which highlighted the challenges in providing primary education in Uganda and demonstrated how the Bumba Foundation Academy community schools model does provide an innovative and viable solution to sustainable quality education in Uganda.
