Mission Statement

Rooted Wisdom Africa, formerly 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.


Rooted Wisdom Africa (RWA) is a US and Uganda-based nonprofit. Through education and entrepreneurship, RWA identifies communities and works with individuals and groups within these areas to achieve financial independence.

Our programs include:

Farmer Field School: The Farmer Field School supports farmers by teaching hands-on environmentally sustainable agricultural techniques using a no-cost or low-cost approach. Once a new lesson is taught, participants demonstrate lessons learned by applying the newly discovered skill at the demonstration site before applying those learnings to their individual farms.

Life Skills Program: helps disadvantaged youth secure brighter futures and economic well-being through educational scholarships, personal and professional development courses, and an income-earning livestock project.

Women's Enterprise Training Program: jump-starts access to economic opportunities for marginalized women living in extreme poverty with little to no formal education, achieved through technical training on creating successful enterprises and skills-based vocational training.

Collegiate Education Training Program: facilitates youth's economic security through vocational education and job placement while helping close critical gaps in community services.
