Leadership

Executive Director

Hello, I'm Kabejja Ruth, the executive director at Sagazi foundation. I have served this tremendous organization in senior positions for four years. During this time, I've developed an unwavering devotion to our mission.

I've been given multiple opportunities to witness the national impact first hand, I'm particularly impressed by the approach to of sagazi foundation to development and poverty eradication. It is the perfect mix of professionalism and relational.

For nearly 4 years Sagazi foundation has been helping to address poverty and injustice among the vulnerable and marginalized women and children in Uganda.

Among our 42 staff we have leading experts in GBV, WASH, Economic empowerment and livelihoods, child health and nutrition, agriculture and food security, and education. Hundreds of volunteers help us implement our projects on a daily basis.

Our grass-roots approach to change allows us to know the people, the problems, and the potential of each community we serve. Wherever we go, we act and feel like a local community based organization. Our staff live within the community and learn all the hopes and challenges each community faces.

Our Promise to the most vulnerable women, children and our national strategy, is to strive for a free poverty nation by 2030 as included in the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN.

we are committed to bringing hope to the world's most vulnerable women and children. We accept women and children of all faiths in our programs. We aim to make all aspects of our work both transparent and trustworthy.

You have a decision to make—will you be one of those people? I hope so, because I am excited about the many opportunities we have to stand with people whose voices go unheard these days, especially women and children.

Our Volunteers

In Buikwe District like any other area of the country, there is a growing number of orphans and vulnerable children as a result of HIV/AIDS. In addition to this, these children are often abandoned with no way of tracing their family members. Many of these children live in communities where there is widespread misconceptions about the causes of HIV/AIDS.
