Our work in Uganda

Introduction

Humentum works frequently in Uganda, holding approximately 20 workshops a year in Kampala, across compliance and risk, financial management, program management and HR & Learning topics. We work on a local level, developing and maintaining relationships with NGOs and member organizations, delivering learning and client services within the region. In addition to facilitating learning, we also coordinate an ongoing program of networking events. Our mission for Uganda is to ensure that any social sector organization or practitioner in the region can conveniently access Humentum’s services. Our regional director for East Africa, Sam Musoke, is based in Uganda.

We’d love to connect with you! Contact our Kampala-based Regional Director, Sam Musoke, for more info.

Bandwidth Aggregation Program

Humentum are partnering with Telecom4Good and their Bandwidth Aggregation Program in Uganda.

The Bandwidth Aggregation Program is a partnership with Roke Telkom using Google’s fibre Optic Network to provide an exclusive NGO only program to improve the quality of Internet services and lower the cost for all participants.  The program enables NGOs to save on internet costs by joining forces with neighboring organizations. Through the BAP, Telecoms4Good negotiate the internet bandwidth of 2+ nonprofit organizations in a specific region to reduce the cost of internet services by at least 30-55% for each organization. Every aggregated megabyte of bandwidth makes a difference—each added megabyte can lower the cost of internet service by up to 15% for each participant.

The Refugee Workforce Development Program (RWDP) aims to provide refugees with access to high quality training in order to foster personal and professional development and create confident learners who can lead positive change within their community and gain employment in humanitarian organizations and initiatives. In addition, the program aims to facilitate increased employment access and opportunities by working to better understand the needs and desired qualifications of NGOs operating in and around refugee settlement areas who may serve as potential employers.
