About Us

Itinga Charity Education Foundation –ICEF is a Non Profit Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) that aims of advancing Education of disadvantaged children and youth in Northern Uganda through provision of scholarships and grants, provision of scholastic materials and facilities for education.

“ITINGA” means “You lift Me.’’ we believe that we can lift up children out of poverty through Education by the generous donations and supports from partners, donors, sponsors and our charity contributions that will change the lives of children and poor communities of Northern Uganda that suffered 20 years of LRA rebel internal war, and diseases like nodding, HIV/AIDS, malaria, unemployment due to high rate of illiteracy, prolonged dry spells in the semi- desert areas of Karamoja sub region. Many children are left orphans and other live in poverty with limited basic needs.

Our mission is also to raise the level of opportunity for disadvantaged children and schools through provision of extra of resources and facilities.


Our Core Values

As a Christian faith based charity, ICEF core values are aligned with fundamental Christian principles which serves as our guides and motivator, we prioritize accountability and responsibility, and give glory to God in all our achievements, encourage generous giving and show concern on the well-beings and skills development of children.

Christ entered

We are founded on the principles and teachings of Christ, and all our operations and services reflect the love of God.
“ For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works , which God prepared in advance for us to do’’ ( Ephesians 2:10)


we value generosity and encourage giving to those in need. “Each of you should give what have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver” (2 Corinthians 9:7)


Love is the greatest because it is the very nature of God. The organisation demonstrates love for others as an expression of God’s love for us. “We love because He first loved us” (1 John 4:19) “Love God with all your beings and Love your neighbour as you love yourself”. (Mathew 22:37-39). Love is what motivates us to help others, to forgive and to show compassion.


we are devoted to prayers and focus in helping children achieve their full potential through Education. As organisation, we seek wisdom, guidance, and blessings of God in all our plans, initiatives, and activities. And as well pray for the children that God entrusted to us that Jesus protect them and bless their future in accordance to his will.( Believe and pray , you will receive Mathew 21:22 )


we strive for accountability and responsibility in all our operations and services. We recognise that we need to earn the trust of all our stakeholders, being good stewards of donor resources, honestly accountable to our partners and most importantly, responsive to the voices of disadvantaged children and communities we served. “ There is nothing that can be hidden from God ; everything in all creation is exposed and lies open before His eyes , and it is to Him that we must all give account of ourselves’’. (Hebrew 4:13). Levitius 19:13 Do not take advantage of anyone and to do no hold back wages of someone you hired. In Exodus 20:15, God commandment tells us not to steal. We belief that misappropriation of funds and inaccurate accountability is stealing, God sees everything and so our actions can be exposed and we will be judged.

Glory to God;

we seek to glorify God in all, recognising that all achievements are ultimately rooted in God’s Grace.” So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all for the glory of God (1 Corinthians10:31). Now to God be the glory who by His power working through us is able to do so much more than we can ever ask for , or even think of; (Ephesians 3:20-21)
