My first time to leave Africa for the United States offered me a grand opportunity to perceive life through a lens of abundance. My inherent passion for giving, sharing, and loving paid off handsomely with a lifetime trip to Texas, US. This visit wouldn’t have been possible if I wasn’t representing the impoverished families (students and parents) of Bwindi Buhoma. I was living the dream of every single African child.[See More]
A big thank you to co-chairs, Mary Marinelli and Amy Ehrlich, for a very successful 3rd annual Maj For a Mission! Over 200 women gathered to play maj jongg to support Kamukama Foundation’s mission to provide life-changing opportunities to the most vulnerable children in Uganda.[See More]
Thoughts by Emily Walter
Each time we pulled into the red gates of Victory school, we were greeted by elated children jumping up and down and beaming teachers waving at us. I’d look around at the faces of our group, and I could not decide who was more excited to see whom.[See More]
Boots on the Ground! Founders Jeanne and Lew Little along with board members Carol and Milo Burdette traveled to Bwindi for progress evaluation. They were humbled by the remarkable improvements that have occurred in five short years. All thanks to the supporters of the Kamakamu Foundation. They came home inspired to develop more additional outreach programs to support these vulnerable children.[See More]
Kamukama Foundation visits DC!
Kamukama Foundation Board members Jeanne and Lew Little met with Ugandan Ambassador Oliver Wonekha in Washington DC to discuss educational needs in Uganda and the mission of Victory School. Thank you for your valuable insight and collaboration Ambassador Wonekha!
Pumpkin Pies for Bluer Skies
Graydon, a 6th grader from Dallas Texas, wanted to do something to help the students at Victory School. She made and sold 32 pumpkin pies for Thanksgiving and donated the proceeds to Victory School.
2nd Annual Maj for a Mission
On November 4th we raised over $100,000 at the 2nd annual Maj For a Mission. 200 people had a wonderful afternoon playing Maj Jong and helping us spread the word about Victory School. Thank you to Ruthie Burrus and Anne Jarvis for their leadership of such a successful event.

I will turn all my mountains into roads. (Isaiah 49:11)
The 2016 Vision Trip was an opportunity to witness the power of God’s love. For one week I stepped into an educational community built on God’s shoulders with faith, hard work, determination and song.[See More]
Thank you Maggie!
Maggie learned about Victory School Uganda from a friend. After hearing that the school’s volleyball court had no net and balls she decided to help. She organized a Christmas party with her friends and their mothers to share the news of Victory School. To date, she has raised over $1,000! Our group will head to Uganda in late January with duffle bags full of nets, balls and pumps. Amazing to see what a 10 year old can do to help others. We look forward to telling Victory School students all about Maggie.
