Cobblestone Foundation

We help nurture the global communities from which Cobblestone’s people come,
by supporting targeted development initiatives.

In line with one of our core values, "Others must benefit from our existence" , we established “The Cobblestone Foundation Uganda” to give back to the society where Cobblestone grew from. Our social purpose is intrinsic to our business purpose, and we are committed to making a tangible difference to the lives of as many people as possible.

Our vision is to create an empowered and self-sustainable
world where everyone has access to quality living, education, health,
and employment.

Being the voice and drivers of change for underprivileged communities

Aiding irrespective of cultural, racial, and gender differences

Rooting out inequalities to give everyone the same starting line

Sustainability and empowerment are our guiding principles

Ensuring accountability and transparency in every area we operate in

The Cobblestone Foundation Uganda is incorporated under the Section 18(3) of the Companies Act 2012 in the Republic of Uganda. Currently it runs an Education Support Program. Our goal is to help give opportunity to the young leaders who will eventually fill the positions to drive development in East Africa and ultimately beyond. We are also in the phase of developing a Maternal Health Program.

Education Support Program

The education program provides opportunities to young local students whose talent and promise exceed their financial resources to complete their education. With a vision that education is a catalyst for social and economic change, the programme provides financial, social, and academic support to identified scholars by supporting education programmes in information technology.

Maternal Health Program

In health, our focus area is maternal health. Currently, we are planning its initiation by mapping current facilities and carrying out need assessment in areas of Kumi. The goal is to support mothers through improved access to healthcare, reduce maternal deaths and complications in child birth.

Meet our first batch of Cobblestone Foundation Scholars from the Kumi district, Uganda. All of them were Division 1 performers in their Primary Leaving Examination (PLE) and are currently enrolled in secondary education at Seeta High School Green Campus.

To give all our team members an opportunity to play a more active part in the workings of the Foundation and to create a meaningful impact in the lives of the less privileged, we have a rotational internal role, with 1 year of tenure, of a Program Coordinator for the Foundation. This is an internal role to give maximum team members at Cobblestone a chance to go above and beyond their normal roles and contribute to the benefit of the disadvantaged communities.

In addition to the Role of Program Coordinator, currently we have a Project Administrator and two on ground Program Officers who support the functioning of the Foundation.


Program Coordinator

I applied for the role of Program Coordinator when I was still a Commercial Graduate at Cobblestone Energy. Out of all the core values we have at Cobblestone Energy, the one that resonates with me the most is “Others must benefit from our existence”. Coming from a developing world, I have witnessed people suffer from inequalities in opportunities. To battle that, I had actively volunteered in Pakistan and wanted to continue laying my part and the foundation offered me exactly that. At Cobblestone Foundation Uganda, we are aiming to support disadvantaged communities by the provision of quality education and health services. Both of these are essential and serve as the drivers for change, and economic prosperity. They bring us closer to our dream of a sustainable world, where everyone is economically empowered and financially independent.


Project Administrator

I am very passionate about giving back to the community and to one of the key areas that has been undermined - education. I believe that every child has a right to good education. A major cause for children not going to school is Poverty and that’s why it is important to first eliminate the root cause of poverty and send children to school and we will be able to see a better Uganda. Therefore the opportunity to serve under Cobblestone Foundation Uganda was a no brainer for me. Having worked in an NGO for 4 years and half, teaching and empowering people through entrepreneurship skills so they can become self-sustainable and seeing lives change greatly, I feel privileged to be able to serve with the
