  • Until recently, average load-shedding (power cuts) in Uganda occurred 12 hours per day. With Bujagali’s five turbines providing up to 250 megawatts of generating capacity, load shedding has been eliminated. Bujagali Hydropower is currently meeting 49% of the country’s electricity needs.

Economic development

The Aga Khan Fund for Economic Development (AKFED), which works to strengthen the role of the private sector in developing countries by promoting entrepreneurial activity and supporting private sector initiatives, has several projects in Uganda.  Its sister agency, the Aga Khan Foundation (AKF), is addressing poverty alleviation in the more remote, rural districts of the West Nile region, by facilitating financial literacy training and supporting savings groups for communities that have very limited access to formal financial services.
