New website under construction

For a long time, we've been wanting to upgrade to a new website for ASSET, and it is finally happening! We are working behind-the-scenes to put together a brand-new website for www.assetuganda.org.  We hope that it will help you learn more about what we do and what we stand for. We hope it will continue to help us communicate about our mission, targets, and goals while sharing some of our favorite pictures from Uganda. We hope to even feature some of our beautiful Bead2Read beads on the website! Stay posted for the release.

ASSET Leadership Symposium 2011

 
 We wanted to take a minute to share some additional fun photos from the recent ASSET Leadership Symposium in Kampala. This was our second annual Leadership Symposium. This year, we focused on career development, networking, and building self-confidence. A favorite session was a workshop on job interviewing skills. Our students are all very bright and motivated; however, they face a tremendously difficult job market for new graduates in Uganda. We are working to equip them with the skills to exceed beyond the gates of their universities--to land meaningful jobs soon after graduating.

Watch This Video and Hear What Our Students Have to Say

Our beneficiaries wanted to express their gratitude in person. So during the 2011 ASSET Leadership Symposium, a few of the students and staff took some time to record a short video thanking you all for your support. Take a look.
