Uganda

Nouvelle Planète began its activities in Uganda in 1999 when it started supporting the St. Moses Child Care Center in Jinja. The organization has supported several construction and renovation projects, and more recently the financial independence of the center. Since 2006, Nouvelle Planète also implemented projects in the Buwana region, which focus especially on improving the access to drinkable water. Since 2014, Nouvelle Planète works in the Mukono district, located at about fifty kilometres east of the capital Kampala and develops projects to improve the living conditions of fishing communities.

Coordination
Since 2014, Nouvelle Planète has worked in association with the Katosi Woman Development Trust (KWDT) which is the coordinator of Nouvelle Planète in Ouganda. This structure has the goal to improve the living conditions of women in rural areas.

Previously, Nouvelle Planète had collaborated with one partner organization who still coordinate certain activities in Jinja. St. Moses centre looks after more than 200 children. The centre carries out different agricultural and stock breeding projects to become gradually independant from external assistance. It employs about ten people, one of which looks after the Nouvelle Planète projects.


Operational Strategy
Since 2014, the new intervention strategy focuses on actions which value female activities in the Mukono region. These projects therefore allow women to enhance their role within the community and offers them new employment and additional income prospects.

Nouvelle Planète implements projects in the field of WaSH, education, renewable energy and agriculture.
