SYPO offers structural aid in Uganda by starting and supporting sustainable, entrepreneurial projects. Instead of taking a top down approach, it is our conviction that a country should grow starting from the strength of its own inhabitants. SYPO invests in the initiative of local people. Our projects are enrepreneurial, and as such their sustainable nature is ensured; the projects grow because of their own success. SYPO consistently aims to find ways to help more effectively, by learning from its own experience. For this reason, we invest a lot of effort to evaluating our own projects, and we have a results based method of working.
- With our Microfinance project we extend business loans to thousands of women in rural areas, using an innovative business model to reach even the most remote clients, keep costs low, and transparancy to the clients high.
- SYPO was founded in 2003, with the start of the Yoghurt project. In this project, SYPO donated pregnant Friesian cows to women willing to take in an orphan in their families, and constructed a yoghurt factory in order to provide the local Ugandan aid organisation Pat the Child with an independent and reliable income.
- With the medical project MediStructures, we work with the medical government to provide primary healthcare to tens of thousands of people, through small clinics and trainings to village health workers.
- Finally, you can volunteer in Uganda through our project Counterpart Travels.
