Our History & Mission

Kyusa was founded by Dr. Noeline Kirabo, Ph.D in 2014 as a training and consultation organization focused on developing young entrepreneurs. An eight month trip to India in 2013 allowed her to do some soul searching while taking a social entrepreneurship course. It sparked a passion for impacting the business landscape through helping marginalized youth create their own way in the world. That initial pilot program transformed the lives of over a dozen young people, and Noeline as well. And Kyusa has been making positive change and scaling ever since.

Kyusa’s mission has evolved over the years. Now, the team is using its robust and proven curriculum and consultation expertise to develop an incubation program focused on helping startup and growing businesses get through the hurdles that so often hinder business success, especially for young entrepreneurs without the network or experience to tackle big challenges alone. Clients come to the Kyusa team to assist them in navigating the process of planning, structuring and strategizing their future.

Kyusa is headquartered in Kampala, and has footprint in thirteen major districts of Uganda namely – Wakiso, Masaka, Jinja, Busia, Kabale, Kisoro, Isingiro, Mbale, Kalangala, Soroti, Tororo, Kalisizo and Kampala.

Impact

Transformation is at the core of Kyusa’s work. Transforming mindsets and therefore lives. Since its inception, Kyusa has provided capacity building training for thousands of young people, which led to the creation of hundreds of MSEs that collectively provided over several thousand informal jobs.  Including in this, social enterprises are tackling various social challenges in their communities. Kyusa has also provided over 90,000 hours of training and business mentoring to its program beneficiaries, and facilitated three business study trips within East Africa. 

Kyusa graduates have started and are growing hundreds of businesses across different sectors. These include catering businesses, events management companies, social enterprises, a football academy, poultry farms, commercial farms, beauty shops, hair dressing businesses, fashion & design boutiques, carpentry workshops, shoe making, craft making, crocheting businesses, makeup services, jewelry brands, soap making, skills training services and electronic repair shops among other ventures.


“Kyusa has an incredible gift of making the complex appear simple, without being simplistic. They consult impeccably to understand organizational needs and then bring innovative business relevant ideas and solutions to the table.”
