Nnina Olugero means: ‘I have a story, I have something to say’. It was founded in June 2012 with the main aim of empowering less fortunate people with relevant skills, knowledge and means to increase self-sustainability. The Nnina Olugero foundation works together with local organisations to enable a better future for the vulnerable people in Ugandan society.
Prevention, self-sustainability and empowerment are keys to our work.
Our mission is to equip less fortunate Ugandans with knowledge, skills and means to increase self-sustainability, empowerment and to work on the prevention of social-economic issues.
- Support underprivileged families in developing a higher family income
- Strengthen the position of girls and women and combating violence
Our vision is that people can be self-involved because they everyone has their own piece of expertise. So you shouldn't take over a community but give people an opportunity for self-development which gives self-confidence and inspiration to do even more.

We approach these problems through offering free interactive workshops, personal guidance and start-up kits to begin an agricultural business. We aim to make sure that our projects are working closely together so that individuals can be helped in a multidisciplinary way. For more information please visit our 'project page'.
