About

Cultural Waves Uganda is a community based nonprofit organization that was founded on the principle of equity by a group of young students. “Right to access”. We believe that everyone should have the right to access the information they need at any time.

 

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 and skills in the areas of health and education.

Our story

Growing up the founder Kakeeto Henry always had the fascination of using relevant community Technology innovations 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 innovations.Growing up the founder Kakeeto Henry always had the fascination of using relevant community Technology innovations for changing the lives of communities.
