Registered Charity Number: No.1149786
Namuwongo Community Foundation (NCF) is a small Ugandan charity that operates in the slums of Kampala. It works with vulnerable children from the Namuwongo slum to give them an education, which they would otherwise not receive.
NCF runs a Primary School plus a sponsorship programme for secondary, vocational and higher education. It operates a feeding programme and seeks to empower widows and other underprivileged women by teaching them craft, micro-business skills and life skills.
It is directed by Christine Kasapuli – an inspirational young woman who grew up in the local slum community and was a beneficiary of this project when it was first established in 2000. She was sponsored through her education and now has graduated into the leadership role of this organisation. Christine is a great example of one of our NCF principles - “change a life, change lives.”
Friends of NCF is a small UK registered charity that provides the funding and support for the work of NCF in Uganda.
