The Umbrella of Hope Foundation

Together, we can change rural communities in Uganda

We are The Umbrella of Hope Foundation, an International Organization based in The Hague Netherlands and working in rural Uganda. We strive for better education for children and young people, and to empower rural communities in Uganda.

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.
