what we do
Over the years UGoGreen has ventured into many different types of development projects. Below we highlight the most successful two that have shown sustainable changes.
Abandoned projects involve:
Youth in Uganda means all persons between the age of 15 and 35 years. We started a Youth Empowerment program which includes workshops where they learn about Assets and Skills, Entrepreneurship, Business plan and others.
All this culminates in the setup of a small business for those who are serious and show enough interest during the workshops.
Our first session has been a great success. People have seriously improved their living standards and are growing their business. Amazing what they can achieve with only EUR 50 start-up capital.
Since 2019 our Youth have started 6 fruitful small businesses to sustain themselves. We are currently working with another group of 19 very eager youth.
Plot 99 Coffeehouse & Lounge
To sustain the operational costs and not be dependent of external sponsoring and donations only, we set up an income generating activity: Plot 99 Coffeehouse and Lounge.
This restaurant in Masaka town offers a wide range of continental food, is a great meeting place and has the best pizzas and view in town.
It is also a learning ground for some of our Youth whom are interested in learning more about being a waiter, chef or running a bigger business in general.
