Handmade Future

Help us move mountains!

Our aim at NOHO Associates is to promote empowerment of
underprivileged groups by bridging the gap between
innovative ideas, knowledges and skills.

We are raising money for three communities in rural Uganda -
Apac Art and Craft Association for Orphan’s Education in Apac and the Ngitunga Foundation in Moroto.

Our wish is to raise enough money to complete these goals:

-Build a resource center for skills development, business creation and personal development in both Apac and Moroto.
-Build a scholarship program with supplementary holiday education
for rural girls in Moroto and orphaned children in Apac.

All members of the Apac community are internally displaced people after the civil war of Lord Resistance Army (LRA). The members therefore have limited access to land, cultivation and income generating activities with leads to low access to education for orphans and other young members. The members of this community are women, children and
orphans.

All members of Ngitunga are considered an indigenous population in Uganda. Moroto has a huge challenge gap in youth unemployment and business creation. Most job opportunities in Moroto are in short term organisation, whereas there are no alternative jobs if the organisation leaves.

We believe in evening out the world’s economy, through education and the sharing of knowledge, and through supporting communities and small businesses.

Through donating to this cause you will contribute to facilitating education for the children and contribute to social empowerment through mentoring the communities in the production of paper bead jewelry (in Apac) and Masai bead jewelry (in Moroto), as well as mentoring in product knowledge, market understanding, administration and strategy planning and social entrepreneurship.

Good ideas and initiatives often stay hidden because access to networks with the correct knowledges and skills are inaccessible. Through our mission, NOHO Associates promote empowerment by advancing the idea with the missing knowledges and skills.

Join us on our quest - let’s move some mountains!
