Who We Are

Community

Empowerment

Foundation

We work with communities in Uganda to support their well being and sustainable growth. Our focus is on holistic development, knowing that the only way to truly support a community is through offering multiple interconnected programs. We stay with the community for as long as it takes for them to achieve self-sustainability.
The community drives this progressive change, as key stakeholders in all planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of our work. No decisions are made without the input of our community.

Our Values

ICEF Canada is entirely volunteer driven. Since 2008 our administration fees have amounted to less than 1% annually and every dollar donated goes to the Tekera Resource Centre. We believe that big chances come when money is spent efficiently and towards the projects that need it the most. As a small but impactful organization we pride ourselves on 100% transparency and direct impact.
