Into Your Hands Africa is a nonprofit 501©3 tax-exempt organization. Its mission is to empower youth and families in rural Uganda through education and enterprise development. The foundation operates independently and supports programs such as women's enterprise training, life-skills student education, small family owned businesses, community development associations and school-based agricultural enterprises. In 2007, IYHA became a formalized nonprofit organization and today the organization works in over seventy villages across two sub counties. Activities to meet the overall mission of the organization include: • Providing assistance for families to develop their own revenue streams through small-scale livestock and agricultural enterprise businesses • Empowering women and girls in Uganda with the tools necessary to attain economic and social self-sufficiency • Developing stronger communities through program engagement, exploration and implementation to support a shift from subsistence farming to commercial agriculture • Assisting youth and young adults in attaining a vocational and formal education We accomplish these objectives through our enterprise programming which allows for food production, income generation and self-sufficiency. To date, projects have included Send-a-Piglet-Home, Send-a-Chicken-Home, mango farms, clonal coffee projects, and other agricultural enterprises. These small-scale family enterprises provide opportunities for families to increase their income and become self-reliant.
