Can I do internship at UGoGreen Organisation, or in Uganda?
Of course. Get in touch and tell us what you are looking for. Creating a better world or a better self?
How green is UGoGreen Organisation?
We want to change the world beginning with ourselves. We do small actions with big impact: avoiding waste (you get everything here still in plastic bags), re-use of empty mayo-jars (instead of buying beautiful new glass storage jars), switching of unnecessary lights, economical water consumption, buy local materials and goods, catch and use rainwater, filter drinking water (instead of plastic bottles), etc.
Is it easy as a foreigner to start a business in Uganda?
No. At first it seems easy. There are many opportunities, but there is more red tape 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.
But that doesn’t stop us!
