Helping Uganda Do Business - Emily's Page

Closed

What's it about?

Emily has been a crucial member of the committee of Helping Uganda Do Business; a combined project between The University of Exeter's Enactus Society and non-governmental organisation, Mwenya Uganda. Helping Uganda Do Business is working to empower Ugandans and raise money for Mwenya by establishing two social enterprises in Uganda; responsible tourism and a sustainable agriculture project.

Responsible Tourism...
Enactus volunteers are helping to set up various activities for tourists such as cooking courses, drumming workshops, craft-making lessons...empowering local people to show tourists their daily lives and give them a more authentic experience of Uganda. The Enactus team are responsible for teaching marketing, PR, guiding skills and explaining to local unemployed people what tourists might be interested in. All employees will be from the local area and will be paid a fair wage for their time. All profits will be used to fund Mwenya Uganda's vital health care work in Central region of Uganda.

Sustainable Agriculture...
Mwenya Uganda have an existing Youth Development project growing mushrooms. The Helping Uganda Do Business team will teach the Mwenya community how to reproduce, market and sell their mushrooms. Mwenya's mushroom farm will be used as an 'example farm' to show unemployed people how to grow vegetables so that they can go on a earn a living for themselves. The mushrooms grown on Mwenya's 'teaching' farm will then be sold in hotels and restaurants, allowing the tourism industry to support community projects. All profits from these sales will be used to fund Mwenya Uganda's wital work in the Central Region of Uganda.

Your donations will help fund the start-up costs for this project so that the Ugandan team can take the reigns after our trip to Uganda in June.
