Buganda Cultural and Development Foundation. The Buganda kingdom established BUCADEF in 1994 as a Non-Governmental Organisation (No. S5914/1 432), non political legitimate body corporate particularly charged with spearheading and directing social economic development in communities. It was established to achieve sustainable improvement in the living standards and welfare of the people, in addition building capacities of communities in order to render effective services to cause sustainable development.
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.
