WORKING WITH REFUGEES

Uganda has more refugees than anywhere else in Africa. HYT works with refugees in settlements throughout Uganda, giving women and men skills in construction and job opportunities.

Refugees build as they train, improving settlements with climate-friendly meeting centres, trading kiosks, schools and water tanks.

After their training, refugees have returned to their home countries to work as masons. Others have built new homes in the settlements, or stayed with HYT to work on other projects.
