Our Activities


Project summary SINA LOKETA (SINAL) is an NGO aiming at empowering youth to use their own skills and abilities to create their social enterprises that can solve social problems, protect the environment and also generate incomes. It is an academy where refugees and disadvantaged youths from the refugee camp and host community in Uganda have the opportunity to learn together and to get through an intense process of personal and professional growth that would also allow them to develop ideas and transform them into social businesses.

Each scholar chooses from our core track areas and gets access to tools that they use to make and develop their ideas through Project Based Learning and hands on experimentation.
The scholars are matched with mentors and keep testing ideas and making mistakes until they become social change makers and living with their own social ventures created thus creating their own jobs and solving societal and/or environmental problems in their communities.
