Pipeline Worldwide Lonyi Village

Project Name: Lonyi Village
Area of Focus: Development
Summary: Pipeline Worldwide (PW) will build and operate a humanitarian short-term lodging and training center in Moyo, Uganda

The Problem:

Moyo, Uganda is a remote district in Northern Uganda. It’s been over 15 years since the three-decade long Lord’s Resistance Army insurgency. While many other districts are slowly rebuilding, Moyo District is still plagued with food insecurity, unemployment, and trauma. The civil war in neighboring South Sudan has forced millions of South Sudanese to flee to surrounding countries. Moyo’s refugee population nearly equals the local population. Due to the remote location and the transportation challenges to reach Moyo, other NGOs have chosen to work in other needy places in Uganda. This underserved region makes it a perfect opportunity for Pipeline Worldwide to leverage our experience and serve as the community catalyst. Through partners and sustainable solutions, we will significantly improve the quality of life for the people of Moyo, Uganda.

Despite the immense challenges in service and resource provision that has accompanied this refugee influx, Moyo embraces the refugees. Ugandans and South Sudanese have sought refuge in each other’s countries for decades. North Ugandans know what it means to be refugees – and as a result, are welcoming the enormous flows arriving daily from South Sudan. Uganda has even been deemed the “the best place in the world” to be a refugee.

Our Solution - Lonyi Village:

This 3.5 acre humanitarian lodging and training campus will include:

  1. Welcome Center - Reception & Marketplace

  2. Administrative Field Office

  3. Learning Center - Internet Café/Virtual Training Classroom, Health Training Classroom, and Simulation Lab

  4. Indoor/Outdoor Café with Demonstration Kitchen

  5. 18 Guest Cottages (6 designed for student and small group lodging)

  6. Duplex for Country Director & Village Mgr.

  7. Staff Housing

  8. WASH Facility (Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene) for shared staff facilities

  9. Workshop – carpentry, maintenance, and material receiving/storage.

  10. Small Group Pavilions

  11. Demonstration Garden

  12. Sapling Nursery

  13. Housekeeping

Need for Lodging:

Moyo lacks lodging and Lonyi Village will create a destination that will attract and recruit other travelers and support. This will also foster collaboration and accelerate economic development.

  • The Village will draw NGO support for this area that is currently deficient.

  • The Village will be a voluntourism destination that has never existed here before. This will bring exposure to this needy and essentially forgotten part of the world.

Need for Training Facilities:

There is a large demand for all types of training that is nonexistent in Moyo or any other neighboring communities in the north due to lack of accommodations, facilitators, internet access, and infrastructure. Most training facilities exist in bigger cities that take days to reach and aren’t affordable.

A Sustainable Solution:

A donation to Lonyi Village will continue to directly benefit members of this community. By generating revenue and facilitating long-term employment and training, the longterm benefits will have sustaining impact that will support economic growth for generations to come.

  • Revenue Generating: The facility won’t need money for operational support and will be self-sustaining.

  • Train the Trainer Model: We will develop talent that will change their own community through capacity building in a variety of sectors including development (construction, water, and energy), healthcare, education, and empowerment (agriculture and entrepreneurship).

  • Proven Model: We already have the relationships and experience working in this area. We’ve been measuring impact and have seen positive results.

  • Immersed in the Community: Having a presence on the ground will improve communication, continuity, and long-term growth.
