South Eastern Private Sector Promotion Enterprise Ltd (Sepspel)

We are a dynamic and innovative organization committed to building the capacities of the private sector and improving the lives of vulnerable households in Uganda. Established in 1998 by the Ministry of Finance, Planning and Economic Development (MoFPED) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), SEPSPEL has been at the forefront of implementing sustainable development initiatives for over two decades. 


In 2003, we registered as a company limited by guarantee, a move that enabled us to broaden our scope and deepen our impact. At SEPSPEL, we believe that sustainable development can only be achieved through the creation of strong, inclusive, and prosperous economies. As such, we work to empower the private sector by providing trainings, mentorship, and on-job coaching to enhance their skills and capabilities.

SEPSPEL as an organisation is dedicated to creating positive change in Eastern and South Eastern Africa. With programmes spanning across Somalia, DR Congo, South Sudan, and Zambia, we are committed to improving the lives of vulnerable communities across the region.


Our work includes programmes focused on livelihoods, education, child protection, health, water, sanitation, and hygiene. We believe in a holistic approach to development that addresses the root causes of poverty and inequality, and we work closely with communities to ensure that our programmes are effective, sustainable, and impactful.


Whether you are interested in supporting our programmes as a volunteer, or partnering with us as a donor or sponsor, we invite you to explore our website and learn more about our work. Together, we can build a better future for Eastern and South Eastern Africa.
