Where innovation meets community
Gulu's Innovation Incubator & Community Center Hybrid
Changemaking for the common good
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
& 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!
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.
Being a leader is lonely, unless you're surrounded by other likeminded leaders and a network of mentors and experts cheering you on.
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!
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.
A communal culture requires a communal solution...always. Innovation is what we do, but community is who we are.
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.
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.
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.
