The Umbrella of Hope Foundation supports projects and programs for accessible and relevant education as well as development initiatives for underprivileged children, young adults, and communities in Uganda and the Netherlands. We believe education is the key to overcoming poverty, and we want to achieve an equitable and sustainable future through education.

We will continue to provide a ground presence deep in rural and remote communities in Uganda.

The Umbrella of Hope Foundation is recognized as a Public Benefit Organisation (Dutch: Algemeen Nut Beogende Instelling, ANBI).  Therefore, any person making donations to The Umbrella of Hope Foundation may deduct their gifts from their Dutch income tax or corporate income tax. Here is a link to the ANBI for more details.

When I heard about the mission of Umbrella of Hope Uganda, I was excited to join their team. Coming from a social work background with a concentration in international humanitarian work, I believed this was an excellent opportunity to contribute to the community of Jinja, Uganda. Volunteers are in integral part to achieving our goals, and I am pleased to be working with this motivated group of individuals.
