SUSTAINABLE SUPPORT FOR COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT

We work with various local projects in Uganda with the aim to increase their impact towards community development. We support and empower Ugandan initiators, because we believe that they know best how to help their communities, and which approach is needed. Different approaches can be to stimulate education, improve the organisation’s procedures or to empower the skills and personalities of individuals. However, despite lots of hard work and dedication, initiators can face many struggles by a lack of forces, resources or knowledge to sustain their activities and to work efficiently. Light up Uganda helps initiators to indicate their main struggles, develop a plan and to provide resources to achieve their sustainable goals. Read more to find out how we do this!
