Kafeero Foundation today launched its very own first community dubbed Ujamaa Tribe. The event started from 9am to 6pm at the foundation’s offices in Muyenga.
Kafeero Foundation is an African social enterprise with a purpose of inspiring and empowering youth, communities and economies to grow through innovation. It provides the skills and tools needed to establish a sustainable enterprise and employment opportunities.
The Ujamaa Tribe collective is a community aimed at solving some of today’s problems facing young youth across the African continent such as lack of access to capital and sustainable income.
The event saw a large crowd of more than 300 guests attend to take part in the unveiling of the Ujamaa Tribe community coupled with live tours of the foundation and discussions about what the initiative is about. There was also a guest appearance from Babaluku who took part in explaining to the audience what Ujamaa was all about.
The community aims at securing funding and providing access to affordable startup services like branding, business idealisation and digital skills to help young businesses stand out in the market.
This is Ujamaa, a tribe where people can connect, share, create opportunities and positive impact through crowd funding, capital investment and learning. With this, we seek to create economic prosperity for youth across the African continent by offering them a range of benefits that can foster innovation and development. – Kafeero Aziizi, Director of Kafeero Foundation
Kafeero Foundation is launching Ujamaa Tribe as a global community that is starting in Uganda with a plan to roll out in our 21 African countries and later globally through it’s numerous global partners.
