A Word

From Us

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.
