THE FIGMENT FOUNDATION
The Figment Foundation is a small but impactful registered Canadian charity dedicated to education around the globe. Inspired by the Disney character Figment, The Figment Foundation was started in the early 1990's. The Figment Foundation helps to foster the creativity and imagination of students around the world, ensuring that quality education does not remain a "figment of the imagination" for so many.
The Figment Foundation was first involved in providing scholarship programs for higher education in the South Pacific. Since then, the foundation's founder Jim Greatbanks and his wife Aman have found a passion for supporting education and capacity building in Uganda. Over the last five years, the Figment Foundation has found purpose in funding the Ebenezer School in Bwindi, an agricultural training program in Bwindi and recently with COVID assistance at the local hospital. They have also funded a Masters degree program for a young lady from Bwindi at Makerere University.
In 2020, when the Uganda Partnership received official Canadian Charitable Registration, a new partnership grew. The Legacy Community School requires infrastructure development, including new buildings, and more in order to best serve the community. Jim, Aman and the Figment Foundation are involved, compassionate and generous in their funding projects, exemplifying impactful charity work.
