About KADAFRICA AGRIBUSINESS DEVELOPMENT FOUNDATION
619 FOREST PARK DR, BRENTWOOD, TN 37027, US
KadAfrica empowers out-of-school girls and young women, from local and refugee communities in Uganda, and promotes women empowerment through our proprietary training program called "The KadAfrica Experience". We envision an equal world where rural smallholder farmers thrive. A world where both men and women farmers live prosperous and healthy lives. Our mission is to increase the knowledge, agricultural productivity, and income of smallholder farmers in East Africa and remove additional barriers for youth and women to access economic opportunities. We do this by focusing our outreach primarily to youth below 35, delivering additional holistic training on sexual and reproductive health and rights, gender, entrepreneurship, financial literacy; so women and girls reach their full potential.
KadAfrica was founded by Rebecca and Eric Kaduru as a small horticulture project in Fort Portal, Uganda, employing a handful of farmworkers. Through relationships with local farmers and the community, it was recognized that we could create real household level change for men and women by providing them with the skills and resources necessary to generate a protected income. When establishing the KadAfrica farm in Fort Portal, we learned that women were the company's most reliable employees. The women requested us to hold their salary and to invest in their family's development instead. Why? So they could ensure their salaries were not taken by a male family member. This inspired us to initiate a social business aspect to our supply chain, and ensure access to our agricultural markets for the most marginalized in our local communities, out of school girls and young women. We created the "KadAfrca Experience, a cycle of increasing impact that builds girls’ skills and agency so that they are able to realize their rights, determine their life outcomes, and influence decision-making in households and communities. Since then, we have expanded operations and grown our impact to reach more than 2,600 girls. In 2019 and 2020, we piloted our existing KadAfrica Experience educational program with refugee populations.
