Can I do internship at UGoGreen Organisation, or in Uganda?
Ask yourself what you are looking for: creating a better world or a better self?
There are lot of opportunities in Uganda, but not with UGoGreen, sorry!
You can get in touch with C & U, a wonderful one woman business that helps with all your internship/volunteer questions.
How green is UGoGreen Organisation?
We want to change the world beginning with ourselves.
We try to keep our waste separate and at a minimum, teach staff and suppliers about the impact of single use plastic, we buy locally as much as possible, use a water filter for daily water consumption, we refuse plastic water bottles in the restaurant and only offer a glass or jug of water.
Is it easy as a foreigner to start a business in Uganda?
Yes. It is very easy to start. There are many opportunities.
It’s when you grow and stay successful that it is hard to keep it up. There is more red tape in Uganda than in Europe. There is a lot of corruption or even just civil servants who abuse their power to refuse your much needed papers, simply because they can.
That doesn’t stop us, and it shouldn’t stop you!
