Legislation on Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) in Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Ethiopia, Rwanda and England and Wales



This literature review finds evidence of several regulatory requirements for non-governmental organisation (NGO) formation and work in Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda and England and Wales. Laws have made it mandatory, or more difficult, to register NGOs, and have imposed more stringent reporting requirements in most of the countries surveyed. In Ethiopia and Kenya, however, moves have been made to ease restrictions on NGOs but have yet to be fully implemented. In some countries such as Kenya, England and Wales, and Uganda, NGOs can register under non-profit company legislation. However, this will usually exclude them from the tax benefits of registration as an NGO or public benefit organisation (PBO) and will subject them to other regulation. NGOs are defined differently in each country’s law, with regards to the type of activity they may undertake and their source of income, among other things. This report uses a broad definition of NGOs as non-governmental organisations working for a charitable purpose. It therefore includes what may in some countries be called a charity, a civil society organisation (CSO) or a public benefit organisation (PBO). NGOs may be both national (meaning based in the country being discussed) or international (usually based in a developed country).




The organisation was founded in 2017 in Edinburgh, Scotland. A reorganisation has been underway for the past 12 months.

Firstly, our organisation is a non-governmental organisation, we are fully independent. This means we operate for a specific social purpose and not for profit. Secondly, we have our own capital and solutions for all purposes. Thirdly, the purpose is socially and economically useful. What purpose fulfils these conditions? The development of families and children in the region, the promotion of culture and the assistance of people in need (mainly children, however) – these objectives fulfil the condition of our organisation and its further development. Our aims are legal, non-profit-making, realistic and do not support members of the authorities. How does our foundation operate and further develop?

Charity sustainability and transformation, the operation of Foundations and Associations in the UK

The basis of any activity is the statutes – the document drawn up by the Founder (founder). The statutes contain information such as the name, objectives and structure of the organisation. It also sets out the rules for the functioning of the Board. This is an extremely important point, as the activities of the foundation without a Board are illegal. The Board is therefore an essential body, consisting of 3 to 5 persons, including the President of the Board. It performs an executive function in the foundation. Its members must therefore be competent in the management of the organisation, capable of representing it with dignity and dealing with its financial affairs, while complying with the articles of association and complying with the law.

The founder appoints the first board of directors. He or she then becomes a member of it. The Foundation cannot exist without assets. Therefore, the Founder has earmarked it to fulfil the purposes set out in the Articles of Association. The amount of the assets is specified, for example, in the foundation deed (declaration of intent stating the establishment of the foundation). The assets include cash, securities and real estate.

Despite the fact that the foundation does not operate for profit, it indirectly carries out business activities and allocates its income to the fulfilment of its statutory objectives. The foundation employs people whose purpose coincides with that stated in the statutes. We employ full-time staff, although we rely mainly on community service.
