KadAfrica envisions a world where out-of-school girls are economic drivers of their communities. We use passion fruit farming as a vehicle for girls to build their own support systems to become independent and empowered decision makers.

THE PROBLEM

Uganda has the youngest population in the world, and 90% of its population is rural. With endemic unemployment, family resources are stretched thin and girls aren’t given the same opportunities as boys. Boys inherit land, their schooling is prioritized over their sisters, their ability to earn income isn’t questioned, they are allowed to have a public voice.

WHY UGANDA?

In rural Uganda, economic dependence is one of the primary injustices facing out of school girls.

WHY PASSION FRUIT?

Passion fruit vines grow above ground on poles, which leaves land open for ground dwelling crops so farmers can feed their families while generating income through a surplus of passion fruit.

WHY GIRLS?

Girls in the Rwenzori region of Western Uganda, are among the most marginalized in the country. Girls’ safety is further compromised by the fact that Kabarole District, where KadAfrica is based, has the highest HIV/AIDS rate nationwide.

VALUE ADDITION THROUGH PROCESSING FRUIT:

KadAfrica has recently opened a state of the art processing facility where all the fruit grown by the beneficiaries is processed into passion fruit Pulp that we then sell on to various clients both local and international.

 

OUR VISION
