Empowering Ugandans Through Education

Am delighted to introduce to you an organisation based for the citizens of Uganda, right from Bulanga Mengo Kampala the capital city of Uganda. Founded by the Buganda kingdom, for the purpose of empowering Ugandans throughEducation, from secondary school to he university and other higher learning institutions. Situated in the Kabaka's palace(Bulange),Kabaka foundation does not charge any fee for enrty in school. It just offers chance to any Ugandan who is in need of joining higher education. It just needs you to perform well in your senior four examinations and win a scholarship to any school or institution you wanw jion. There were alot of Ugandans who had no dream of joining higher education and university because of tuition bottleneck. but Kabaka Foundation has made their dreams a reality. Am Just proud of it because i am one of them .It has really done us proud in Uganda. Big up to the Kabaka of Buganda- Ronald Munanda Mutebi II.
