At Kale Uganda we create opportunities for Ugandans to take ownership of their own community development. To achieve this we work in the fields of food security, sustainable wealth creation, education and gender equality. Kale emphasizes low budget, grassroots projects with an end goal of Ugandan ownership.
The Holistic Village Program focuses on a holistic approach to development. Instead of specializing in one area, we are tackling all the issues in the village since they are inevitably interlinked. The project begins with bringing local leaders and the community together to discuss their ideas for development and promote community ownership of the projects. The issue areas we target include agriculture, education, healthcare & sanitation and many more.
Our two other programs, the Jinja Entrepreneurial Program (JEP) and our Art, Sports and Life Skills Program focus on specific target audiences. JEP works to improve the livelihoods of small business owners through micro finance loans, close monitoring and business training workshops. The Art, Sports and Life Skills Program works with children and young adults in Jinja town to foster the creativity and leadership skills needed for this generation of Ugandans to lead their own community development in the future.
