Through the years UGoGreen has ventured into many different types of charity work. We learned to focus on a couple only, to be able to achieve sustainable changes.
Our current 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 running costs of UGoGreen and not be dependent of external donations only, an income generating activity was set up: 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.
Do you like what we are doing and do you want to support our Youth with a startup capital?
Thank you, we are very grateful!
