Home: About Us
The Aliguma Foundation is a social charity organization that fosters sustainable development within otherwise marginalized populations in Acholi Quarters slums via sports and enterprise. We believe that sports and football inherently offer a transferable set of skills for social development through team building, acceptance, tolerance and discipline. It's a simple philosophy, but one that is having a tremendous impact on the population particularly Children and their Mothers.
Slum Soccer started out as a simple weekend session to keep Acholi Quarters residents entertained particularly children who could feel the boredom especially during school holidays. These sessions soon developed into fully fledged coaching camps, educational and healthcare workshops and societal development programs. Typical participants came from some of Kampala’s marginalized Communities including homeless, recovering addicts, slum dwelling children and the like. THEALIGUMA Foundation operates in multiple Slum Areas with major emphasis on Acholi Quarters Slums in Banda-Nakawa Division, Kampala District, offering specialized life resilience programs for children, their mothers and other at risk persons.
