Saint Ann Foundation (SAF) is a local independent non-profit organization in Uganda, founded in 2012 (MIA/NB/2017/08/173) with an affiliation in the US under a 501(c)3 NGO (EIN 83-0652651). SAF is dedicated to providing opportunities to underprivileged children and women through education, cultural arts and community support. SAF works with the poor to overcome poverty and injustice as well as alleviate the distress of the vulnerable and defenseless. They provide food, shelter, and love to those who are marginalized and in need of compassion. SAF serves all people regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, gender or economic background etc.
SAF programs support children and young people to participate more fully in their education by providing scholarships, emotional, practical and financial support. The programs give disadvantaged children the skills and motivation to stay in school and get the most from their education so they can create a better future for themselves.
Across the world, almost one billion children live in poverty. They live without access to proper nutrition, healthcare and especially, adequate education. Children are the future of the world and need to be nurtured to become successful. When children grow up with skills to join the labor force, they can help pull their countries out of poverty by making changes in the political system and economy. As educated citizens, they will be less likely to engage in unethical behavior and more likely to have fewer children. As a result, both mortality and overpopulation rates decline.
By ignoring children’s education, developing countries like Uganda are unaware of talented children. Talented children are more likely to achieve higher degrees and may go into professions such educators, business leaders and scientific researchers. These children have the capacity to make huge contributions to society in various fields that will support economic growth in developing countries. A good education gives children the chance to prove themselves as well as the basic knowledge to pursue their dreams.
The Saint Ann Foundation provides primary education, food, shelter, uniforms, and scholastic materials to children living in Kasangati Town Council in the Wakiso District of Kampala City, Uganda. Also, children, women, and families within Kasangati are provided social welfare assistance, from mediation related to domestic disputes to employment assistance. We have implemented various programs to improve our community.
