The decadence in which Uganda had been plunged by the past ruling regimes is well documented and need not be repeated here. The plight of the people especially in the rural areas and particularly women and children was, in many aspects, appalling. The social economic situation coupled with environmental deterioration prompted the Kabaka to conceive the idea of the KABAKA FOUNDATION. This was with clear understanding that great as the efforts of the government were in addressing these problems, there was a concrete need for supplementary support and concerted action in order to have an impact. The Foundation was thus set up to cooperate and coordinate with Government, development agencies, NGOs, community-based organisations and individuals to address social-economic and environmental problems.
The Kabaka Foundation is a charitable trust registered as a Non-Government Organisation. Its overall aim is to institute, promote, encourage and support cultural, educational, literacy, economic, social and charitable projects for the benefit of the public in Buganda and Uganda.
The policy making and top management body of the Foundation is the Board of Governors (Trustees), which is chaired by the Kabaka. The day to day work is under the management of the Executive Director.
The fund is the one into which all monies received from whatever source for the purpose of the Foundation must be paid. It is intended and expected that the Foundation will raise money through public appeals and receive donations, grants, legacies, devises and income from investments. The bankers for the Trust Fund are Greenland Bank Ltd., Kampala Road, P.O. Box 6021 Kampala, UGANDA.
We appeal to all those who can afford to support the fund both financially and materially; and as a newly formed body, we welcome any advice or suggestions which could contribute to the realization of the Foundation's objectives.
