Our main goal is to ensure that the vulnerable children of Nkuringo receive good education.

NVCDF was founded in 2016 to identify and support vulnerable children in and around Nkuringo, a rural area in the Southwest of Uganda. It is a non-profit community-based organization that derives its funding through local and international well-wishers.

The NVCDF focuses its attention on orphaned children, children with disabilities, Batwa children, bright children and children from poverty-ridden families. To help these children realize their full potential, we provide sponsorships, scholastic materials, various workshops and economic strengthening of the vulnerable children’s households.

The organization was founded by its present director Tomas Habanabakiza, who was born and raised in the Nkuringo conservation area.


The NVCDF team consists of volunteers from the Nkuringo area. Every one of us is dedicated to uplifting our community by giving special support and attention to those who need it most – our children.

Tomas Habanabakiza

Director & Founder

Being a primary school teacher, Tomas knows all about the struggles of many families in Nkuringo to afford basic education for their children. Thus, he has reached out to the vulnerable children of his community for many years to help them get access to education and avoid the challenges and hardships he himself had to go through as a child.

The Team

The members of NVCDF


We are proud of our strong partnership with KUYAMBA – Kinderhilfe Uganda, a non-profit NGO from Germany. Over the last few years we have built a strong friendship and with the help of their donations we have been able to plan and realise many projects for the children of Nkuringo.


We promise and pledge that all our efforts will always be directed at empowering vulnerable children and their families in Nkuringo. We guarantee that all donations to our foundation will solely and transparently be used for the benefit of these children, especially for projects designed to help them help themselves.

These projects include weekly workshops teaching them important vocational and general life skills and, above all, measures giving them access to good education, such as school sponsorships and scholastic materials.
