Welcome to Buganda Kingdom Official Website

The Kingdom of Buganda is situated in the Central region of the country known today as Uganda. It is right in the heart of Africa astride the Equator and in the North West shores of Lake Victoria and it's also the source of the great river Nile. Buganda Kingdom is the home to the nation's political and commercial capital city Kampala as well as the country's main International airport Entebbe.

The Kingdom's equatorial climate provides plentiful sunshine which is moderated by relatively high altitude. Since it's near Lake Victoria, it's mean annual temperature ranges from 16 degrees 25 degrees Celsius. Daytime temperature averages between 8 degrees to 10 degrees Celsius warmer than night temperatures. Rainfall is evenly distributed around the area and the mean annual rainfall often exceeds 2100 millimeters. The area is warm rather than hot and temperatures vary little throughout the year.The Baganda had a centralised system of government which by 1750 was the most well organised More..

In 1996, Kabaka Foundation registered as a trust to promote, encourage and support cultural, educational, literacy, economic, social and charitable projects for the benefit of the public in Buganda and Uganda at large. Among the key social evils, the Foundation sought to team up with social development partners to tackle wallowing poverty and social deprivation among Kabaka’s subjects.

The decadence in which Uganda had been plunged by the past ruling regimes is well documented and need not be repeated here. The plight of the people especially in the rural areas and particularly women and children was, in many aspects, appalling.

The social economic situation coupled with environmental deterioration prompted the Kabaka to conceive the idea of the KABAKA FOUNDATION. This was with clear understanding that great as the efforts of the government were in addressing these problems, there was a concrete need for supplementary support and concerted action in order to have an impact.

The Foundation was thus set up in 1995 to cooperate and coordinate with Government, development agencies, NGOs, community-based organizations and individuals to address social-economic and environmental problems.
