Ssamba Foundation established the Ssamba School Supplies Project as a way of promoting education in rural areas of Mukono District, Uganda. Through the School Supplies Project, we provide great relief to needy and vulnerable children in rural communities of Mukono District by providing them with scholastic materials to enable them to attend school.
Our organization encourages and sustains the academic progression of children from early education programs through secondary school and beyond. Children in poverty come to our community center to receive educational support: pencils, pens, notebooks, erasers, crayons, markers, dictionaries, construction paper, glue, shoes, exercise books, story books, bibles, educational toys, Backpacks etc.
We collect (new and used) pens, pencils, notebooks, erasers, crayons, markers, construction paper, glue, shoes, clothes, books, story books, bibles, dictionaries, educational toys, Backpacks etc. from friends, colleagues, family or whoever donates them and donate them to needy and vulnerable children in Uganda.
As a donor, you will receive regular updates on how your donation has been distributed and how many children have benefitted from it. You can directly post the package to us in Uganda through our address below.
Ssamba Foundation believes that education is extremely important to improve the lives of orphans and children in need, this is the reason behind the establishment of Ssamba School Supplies Project. We support their education by providing schooling support, continuously discussing their progress with teachers and guardians.
