Innovation

60+ years of aid work and research has taught us the secret to effective development is local ownership. Elephante exists to prove that this is the future of global development.

We stand behind local leaders who are stepping up for their community

Business &
Job Creation
Health &
Wellness
Community &
Family Connection
Creative Arts
& Culture
Education
& Literacy
Environment &
Sustainability
Equality &
Human Rights
Gospel Clarity
& Biblical Literacy

All partners must be innovating in at least one of these areas.  Most of our partners are integrating solutions to three or more of them with a single project!

Yeah, our partners are epic!

Infrastructure

We share our office and event spaces, cover utilities, provide staff meals, and more.  As we continue to build out more spaces, we can increase these services.

Network

Being a leader is lonely, unless you're surrounded by other likeminded leaders and a network of mentors and experts cheering you on.

knowledge

Coming soon!  Business trainings, from beginner to advanced, a library of resources, and internal M&E services so our partners don't have to fly blind!

Capital

We all know you can't get very far without some cold hard cash.  We are connecting donors and investors to our partners, and even funding a few things ourselves.

Hey gulu!
What do you want to do next?

Community

A communal culture requires a communal solution...always. Innovation is what we do, but community is who we are.

Gathering

We love hosting events that bring people together!  Game nights, concerts, performances, and other events that are open to anyone.  Nothing to do on a Friday night?  You're most welcome at Elephante!

We know how important it is for a community to laugh together (almost as important as breaking bread together).  We take every opportunity to create space that will foster play time with friends, family, and with our partners.

Collabing

We live for the moments our partners lean on each other to make their work even better!  We believe this happens when you foster a communal space and bring them together.

Togethering

We are building a community of likeminded leaders who are using their unique strengths to bring change to Northern Uganda.  They work together, spur each other on, and each do their part towards the greatest good of Northern Uganda.
