Hope Hub Kampala

Uganda is arguably one of the most hospitable countries worldwide. As a result of its location and culture, many refugees have sought solace and found a place they can call home. Over the years, it has become home to more than 1,000,000 registered refugees from different countries around the continent. These include but are not limited to the Democratic Republic of Congo, South Sudan, Somalia and Eritrea, to mention but a few. As a result of the influx in the number of refugees, the government has set up designated refugee centres across the country where assistance can be provided for them on the basis of the community setting.

A few refugees however have chosen to take a leap of faith and seek to have a life outside government aid. These brave refugees have decided to seek means of building a life of their own within the confines of the busy city center and unlike their counterparts in settlement camps, their access to aid ranges from minimal to non-existent. This means that on top of the trauma they struggle to deal with, they have an added burden of making a living in the tough economic times.

It is with these brave people in mind that Hope Hub was founded. The Hub was formed with the idea of restoring hope to the refugees who have over time struggled to earn a living. It was created as a safe learning environment to help the refugees tap into their existing potential and also enable them to gain a skill set that could go a long way in helping them earn a living. With some help from the American Embassy, the team was in a position to set up a fully functional learning centre for the refugees.

In a case study in #Dadaab, Kenya, despite progress in localisation of knowledge production, barriers still hinder long-term capacity of refugee-led organisations & opportunities available to #refugee researchers.
