Ssamba Foundation with support from SunTrack Adventures and Go Volunteer Africa has launched Mama Care project as a response to end violence against women which is on the increase in this COVID 19 pandemic era. COVID-19 has resulted in alarmingly high rates of violence against women and girls in many needy communities across Uganda.
Although violence against women and girls was a pandemic long before COVID-19, and Ssamba Foundation has been on the front line to respond against violence and abuse against women and girls, the situation at the moment is alarming and calls for better intervention efforts.
The COVID-19 compelled us to reconsider our development support, hence the launch of the Mama Care Project. The Mama Care Project will be running in Mukono District, Kyampisi Subcounty and nearby communities.
Ssamba Foundation is committed to our headquarters district of Mukono, Uganda. Ssamba Foundation has supported the communities of Mukono and beyond since 2006. Ssamba Foundation is committed to making an impact in Mukono through Strategic Community Investments by supporting causes that strengthen community development focus.
Ssamba Foundation founder Hon. Isaac Ssamba established the organization with a mission to help the least able to help themselves, build safer, more resilient and inclusive communities around Africa. And that’s exactly what we’ve been doing for nearly 20 years.
Hon. Ssamba is the Executive Chairman of the organization. He has spent the last 15 years managing projects that focus on sustainable community development. Ssamba Foundation has supported many local projects that share our dedication to improving lives and strengthening communities where we live and work every day.
