What is Fuel for the Future?
Fuel for the Future is a small business located in Uganda at the Kyaka II refugee settlement west of Kampala. Home to approximately 30,000 refugees from Rwanda, Democratic Republic of Congo and Sudan, this settlement faces a critical shortage of firewood for cooking and basic needs.
In response to this, Pastor Godfrey Byaruhanga, a Ugandan living near the settlement developed a biochar briquetting product which uses locally grown biomass (banana leaves, bean straw, corn stover, sorghum).

We are raising capital to aid in the development of the small business. The finances will be utilized in a number of different ways. Firstly, the money will be used to purchase a truck to transport the product to and from selling locations. Secondly, the money will be put towards a building to store the machines and final product for year round production. Lastly, any additional resources will be used for working capital, office requirements, and production equipment.
