Right to access. We believe that everyone should have the right to access the information they need.
Our aim therefore is to demystify Information Communication Technologies (ICTs) and make them accessible to all, particularly women and girls in rural areas, who are an underserved population.
Our programs are geared towards improving the lives of adolescents and young adults by providing them with the relevant information in the areas of health and education. Registered in Uganda s.5914/7826
Growing up the founder Kakeeto Henry always had the fascination of using relevant communication channels for changing the lives of communities.
He joined university to grow more in the skills of developing software and meeting young minds to further this discussion. While at the university, we realized the issues in our communities that we originate from and the need to give back to these communities through the use of technology.
