This video provides a brief introduction about our skilling and training programme and also highlights what we did during an innovation camp that was organized in 2018 in partnership with Innovation Consortium. 



A word from Swedy Kitenge, one of our trainees 

"I can not list - one by one - what RISE-UP has done for me because they are too many" 


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.
