We Are Enriched

We’re absolutely rapt to be able to show you this video of the projects we’ve worked on in Uganda over the past five years



The Kain Foundation works alongside the corporate and community sector to create opportunities for children and youth in need. We believe in a two-way opportunity, for children and youth to fulfill their potential and for businesses and their employees to experience projects. We exist quite simply to enrich lives.


Our focus is creating more opportunities for children and youth to reach their potential. Not-for-profits are maxed out doing what they best – delivering services – and businesses are increasingly eager to help but don’t have the resources to find and source the right opportunities.


By bringing businesses, not for profits and communities together with a common goal – we can contribute far more valuably to improving the lives of others.


We want you to get involved – whether you’re a business, not-for-profit or individual ready to challenge traditional ways of making change.

Corporate Partners

Blue Sky is involved with Kain Foundation’s Uganda program because it delivers a rare combination of dramatic, direct and immediate impact on local communities as well as on members of our team. We’ve seen participants in this program become more rounded and empathic human beings, inspired by the power of their investment to change lives for the better.

Rob Shand

Managing Director, Blue Sky Alternative Investments

The Partners at Halpin Financial Services wanted to contribute to communities in a meaningful way that involved the whole team. We’ve sent a team member to Uganda for the last three years and each has experienced a deep personal achievement in helping others. Our fundraising activities have had the added benefit of bringing our team closer together through having fun achieving shared goals. We recommend this experience to other businesses.

Jane Gun

Partner, Halpin Financial Services

For any business that wants to increase their team’s engagement through developing a culture of ‘giving back’ and increasing connections with their communities, we strongly recommend joining the Kain Foundation’s corporate partner network.
