Together we can make a difference

Lugei Foundation evolved from the need to share knowledge, resources, expertise and experiences to solve the immediate health and community development needs of our communities. The immediate Lugei Family and some fellow healthcare professionals who had same passion and shared the same dream started to provide free health education, nutrition counseling, and later sub-subsidized clinical care at Lugei Health Centre in 2012.


About Us

Lugei Foundation (LF) is a National Not for profit (charity) organization registered in The Republic of Uganda. The foundation was established by young healthcare professionals who are passionate about touching and improving lives of vulnerable populations using locally available, adaptive and simple technology to provide solutions to the everyday health and development needs of our communities.

Our Core values:

  • Humanity built on love, kindness, and social intelligence
  • Accountability for our work and for what we say we will do
  • Mutual Respect for diversity, individual & cultural differences

We embrace an Integrated Model of service delivery through the Community Oriented Primary Health Care (COPC) model. LF uses the Community Oriented Primary Care model to roll out its community health and development interventions. The rational for this approach is that the COPC model promotes use of evidence derived from health data, surveys and statistics for programming. It involves needs identification and priority setting, measuring changes made in terms of outcome, and monitoring the impact of the interventions. Importantly, communities must participate in each step of the interventions including service delivery and utilisation of the health care services created.
