our mission

Dedicated to supporting young women (14-26) by equipping them with life skills through mentorship, training and education to help them embrace and reach their full potential to create change in themselves and ultimately in their communities.

Shaping and contributing to a changing world

We support young women to discover and realize their full potential to create change in themselves and ultimately in their communities. We work with partner organizations to provide resources to marginalized communities. Through the skills training center, we teach income generating skills to underprivileged young women to curve their financial independence. We also advocate for policy change on women’s rights to improve the quality of life for women in Uganda. Kakazi aims to provide equal access to opportunity and resources for all girls/women who might otherwise be excluded or vulnerable or example those having physical, intellectual disabilities or belonging to other minority groups
