About Wilmat Development Foundation
Wilmat Development Foundation is a Non-Profit Organization that was founded in 2014 with the main goal of providing practical education to the underprivileged community people in Uganda. Early 2019, we took on the partnership with Changing Lives-Switzerland as education is the way out of poverty and further improve their living conditions through sustainable development programs by integrating them in the society and helping them to find the best solutions to the entrenched problems affecting them in their respective communities. Our experience is based on the reality that every human being is a unique individual and that we all have a right to good health and basic needs of life and access mean to a comfortable life in one way or another.

1 Skills Development Programs
Through our “Skills Development Programs”, we look at training people on ways of how to turn their theoretical knowledge acquired from schools into practice. With the need to turn theory into practical skills, higher institutions of learning had thought wisely and introduced mandatory internship or industrial training for every student so that they can be introduced to a working environment before they get into the job market.
2. Schools outreach programs
Often students from underprivileged families in rural communities lack role models who they can look up to on matters of educational and career development. Lack of awareness and proper guidance leads to making poor career choices. Wilmat Development Foundation fills this gap through its various programs tailored at exposing the students to the breadth of professional prospects in all academic disciples.
3 Climate Program
Basing on the various visits to the informal settlements major Kampala suburbs, it is evident that people living in these informal settlements are more exposed to diseases due to water and sanitation challenges. We have initiated programs tailored towards improving and promoting the aspects of access to clean water, promoting good sanitation practices, environmental conservation and climate action tailored towards improving the lives of informal settlement dwellers so as to achieve Sustainable Development Goals 6, 13 and 15.
