Innovative Youth with Action Uganda

(Unverified non-profit organisation)

“Creating Sustainable Community Based Development Initiatives”
We believe sustainable development and transformation are essential to ensuring the creation of well-founded initiatives that empower poor, marginalized, and vulnerable people to change their lives and communities. We work to empower them with the tools and knowledge they need that will allow them to overcome the many challenges they face and focus on creating innovative sustainable business and sustainable community based driven development initiatives. It is such well-founded initiatives that create jobs, improve people’s livelihoods, and, in turn, ensure a lasting more prosperous society. As the widely-repeated adage has taught us, IYAU will help provide the hook, or access to it, that then empowers and allows the people to fish for themselves
