In March 2015, Mathias Kamp took over as head of the Konrad Adenauer Foundation (KAS) country office in Uganda. Germany is one of the few countries worldwide that has state-funded political foundations which are close to the respective political parties in Germany. In addition to their work at home, they are actively involved in political education around the world. The two largest German political foundations, the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) and the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS), are operating in Uganda.
