Our Solution

Bare necessities vs. self-reliance

The current approach to refugees, which most countries follow, neglects the opportunity refugees can bring to the local economy and society. It has a short-sighted strategy that often leads refugees to barely survive, let alone thrive and makes ineffective use of aid provisions.
Team Spirit tackles these challenges by reimagining refugees' economic inclusion to create a more prosperous future for all by enhancing agricultural supply chains, creating concrete livelihoods and providing vocational training. Overall, we foster self-reliance, build more resilient supply chains and increase food security.

Our Pilot Program

Our impactful 5-day vocational training about sustainable agriculture and business in the Rwamwanja Settlement, implemented with our partner Tomorrow Vijana and with four follow-up training.

Impact on the ground

After months of preparation, tears and sweat, we launched our pilot program “Agroecology and Business Bootcamp” in the Rwamwanja Settlement in Uganda. Chantal - our director - and Sasha - our agricultural lead traveled to Uganda to facilitate and teach the Bootcamp together with Tomorrow Vijana - our key local partner in launching the Bootcamp and implementer. 


For five days, we taught the principles of agroecology and social entrepreneurship with hands-on elements to almost 60 participants from the refugee community.
