Welcome to HYT, an award winning NGO that is transforming communities with its unique but proven approach to construction and training for employment. HYT’s skilled team of trainers and builders is making a real, sustainable difference to the people of this beautiful country.
HYT trains young Ugandans in an innovative, carbon-saving building technology, giving them construction skills that improve education, opportunity and livelihoods.
We also transform communities, building low-cost school buildings and installing rainwater storage tanks and sanitation facilities. This is done in a way that preserves rather than damages the beautiful Ugandan landscape.
Through its training schemes, HYT promotes the use of the Interlocking Stabilised Soil Block, a low-cost, carbon-saving alternative to the environmentally damaging fired brick.
The ISSB is a compressed earth technology that is readily adopted in both rural communities and urban areas. HYT’s experienced team of trainers lead this successful programme of sustainable development.
Uganda has one of the fastest growing populations on earth. There is an urgent need for skills training and for developing employment opportunity, while at the same time meeting basic humanitarian needs.
HYT has a proven record of working in Uganda, both in our One Village at a Time project and with other partners, local, national and international. HYT gives a hand up not a hand out.
