Organization Information

Mission Statement

Into Your Hands Africa is a nonprofit 501©3 tax-exempt organization. We empower children and families in rural Uganda to rise above the constraints of poverty through education and business development.

Description

The foundation operates independently and supports programs such as women’s enterprise training, life-skills student education, small family-owned businesses, community development associations, and school-based agricultural enterprises.

In 2007, IYHA became a formalized nonprofit organization, and today the organization works in over seventy villages across two sub-counties.

Activities to meet the overall mission of the organization include:

  • Providing assistance for families to develop their own revenue streams through small-

    scale livestock and agricultural enterprise businesses

  • Empowering women and girls in Uganda with the tools necessary to attain economic

    and social self-sufficiency

  • Developing stronger communities through program engagement, exploration and

    implementation to support a shift from subsistence farming to commercial agriculture

  • Assisting youth and young adults in attaining a vocational and formal education

    We accomplish these objectives through our enterprise programming, which allows for food production, income generation, and self-sufficiency.
