We train, empower and provide tools for urban refugees in Kampala to tell their stories

To address the challenge of negative refugee narratives, we work with a group of urban refugees through a collaborative projects with organizations such as Media Challenge Academy to equip them with professional skills in journalism, storytelling and online content creation. Through this initiative, urban refugees will be able to professional tell their own stories by themselves — something which is seldom provided by the traditional media. To tell these stories, several multimedia tools such as blogs, Vlogs and social media platforms will be used to reach a wide audience. At our studio, we also provide a space for refugees to record songs and other audio-visual content to about their own stories.


RISE-UP Hub is a space and a platform where the artistic, social and economic opportunities, talents and connections for urban refugees in Kampala are relentlessly pursued and consciously uplifted. We invest in urban refugees by offering skills development opportunities, showcasing and introducing various products they have made to the marketplace. We believe that by creating such a space and platform, we shall positively contribute towards creating better opportunities for urban refugees in Uganda.
