The Source Cafe began in 1997 with two goals:

  • Providing a model of ethical business in East Africa
  • Providing a space for locals and foreigners to connect over a meal.

The Resource Centre began in 1997 (at a different location) with two goals:

  • Providing the first lending library in Uganda.
  • Offering Jinja and Eastern Uganda with the Internet for the FIRST time!

In 1999, the Cafe and the Resource Centre came together under one roof.  The story since that beginning has grown.  This section provides an overview of the past 13 years.  But if you really want the story, stop by for a cappuccino and we’ll be glad to tell it to you.
