Learning from the Hope Development Initiative in Uganda

This book presents the results of a transcultural research group consisting of students and lecturers from Uganda and Germany. Together they conducted research in Uganda, focusing on the culture of central Uganda with a particular focus on the work of the Hope Development Initiative. The contributions, which can be classified into the three categories: entrepreneurship, society and culture, deal primarily with the subject of community building from a transcultural perspective. The aim was to analyse how community building contributes to the creation of entrepreneurial opportunities to make a positive impact on people’s lives as well as on the community as a whole.
