Buiding a Sustainable Future
The idea for UGoGreen started in 2011, when founders Lenke Slegers and Reginald Amade decided to move to Uganda and start a new life.
The concept of UGoGreen was created with and in the best interest of local communities in Uganda in mind. We decided to operate from Masaka, an important trading center in Masaka district, arguably second to Kampala in size and impact. Our efforts to “find” projects and communities took us to Lwengo and Kalungu districts, where we encountered first hand the challenges related to our efforts to engage with local communities in a rural context.
UGoGreen was established as a Local NGO Registration Number 11953 in 2016 .
Ideas for projects originate from our beneficiaries and have led to a very diverse array of help to one solid project, that actually makes a difference and has already improved lives.
What we do
Through the years UGoGreen has ventured into many different types of projects. We learned to focus and be successful with one program only, and achieve sustainable changes.
Besides our Youth Empowerment program, UGoGreen is supported by Plot 99 Coffeehouse & Lounge.
Plot 99 is an effective social enterprise where our interested youth can shadow a job they like, do internship or learn more about running a business in general.
