  • Description

    Description

    I am Hashim, a young Ugandan social entrepreneur. I am currently running my own businesses in smart energy and tourism. Besides that I always tend to be engaged in the support of a number of other projects including this local NGO where I volunteer regularly.

    I like to do sports and play Ultimate Frisbee 2 times a week with a mixed group of local and international friends in Boma, Fort Portal. I enjoy discovering new places and making hikes in nature, as well as having a good talk or a soccer game.

    I have been volunteering with this project over the last 4 years whenever they need help. We support youth and women, child lead households and vulnerable communities through empowerment and life skills training.

    Our projects include; hands on vocational training (Foot wear, Belts, handbag, jewelry and shoe making design and manufacture course, Mobile Communications and Phone repair course, computer skills training, baking course, salon and hairdressing), provides psycho social, medical, nutritional, educational and basic needs support to vulnerable communities.

    Our work has been recognized and over the last 4 years awarded grants from the US Government's program, International Labor Organization, Water Charity, Peace Corps, and a host of individual friends and supporters from across the world from US, UK, Ireland, Germany, Belgium, Canada and many other countries. (Please feel free to ask for more information or ask for our website, visit our Facebook Page to learn more about us).

    We are happy to host you at our project in this scenic area of Uganda, Fort Portal. I'm also happy to talk to you about other projects that we are partners or just help you have a great fulfilling visit to Uganda.
