Business as Unusual
Doing Good is Good Business!
THE XSABO FOUNDATION
THE XSABO FOUNDATION is the corporate social responsibility arm of The Xsabo Group.
In this connection, The Xsabo Foundation is sponsor of youth income generation activities, including a coffee factory for the youth, and an annual regional youth football and netball as well as cycling tournament.
The Xsabo Foundation is also sponsor of a mobile medical youth camp which has to-date provided treatment free-of-charge to over 30,000 disadvantaged and needy people in rural areas in Africa.
In addition to the above, The Xsabo Foundation is also empowering girls and women groups to produce self-made 100% bio-degradable sanitary pads out of banana and other vegetable fibres (“Fancy Pads”). In Uganda, this is already enabling hundreds and poised to enable thousands of girls to stop missing school during their menstrual period.
Finally, The Xsabo Foundation is currently sponsoring students at universities and other institutions of higher learning in Germany, Hungary and Uganda.
The Xsabo Foundation is managed by an independent Board of Directors separate from that of The Xsabo Group and boasts its own Management Team.
MOBILE MEDICAL CAMP
Governments in developing countries still need supplementary support in healthcare provision. Our Mobile Medical Camps in Uganda contribute to bridging this gap. The medical services are given free to the people but paid for by The Xsabo Foundation, the lead sponsor, in collaboration with the Office of the Vice President of the Republic of Uganda.
THE COFFEE FACTORY
The coffee factory for the youth in Greater Masaka Region is an income generation initiative with the key goal of promoting youth entrepreneurship development and innovations. The ultimate aim is to bring all youth coffee farmers together under Buyasso Ventures Limited and build a successful national brand with high value addition and international sales.
THE FANCY PADS INITIATIVE
The focus of the Fancy Pads Initiative is Menstrual Hygiene Management as a measure to keep the Girl Child in Uganda and eventually other African regions in school. The 'Fancy Pads' product and the self-help initiative with the corresponding imple-mentation concept constitute a 100% bio-degradable sustainable answer for continuous availability of sanitary pads at low cost to all Ugandan girls and women.
YOUTH SPORTS TOURNAMENT
Beyond the simple enjoyment it provides, sports is good for health. It also improves mood, boosts energy and promotes better sleep. The Xsabo Foundation supports sports among the youth because worldwide studies confirm that young people who engage in sports develop strong leadership skills, work better in teams and demonstrate a healthy dose of self-confidence.
