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.
