Kisoboka Africa is a financial inclusion and youth empowerment Organization, focused on improving livelihoods of rural communities through ensuring financial inclusion and equipping youths both in schools and out of school with essential knowledge to help them live to their full potential.
School Community Banks (SCOBA)
Under the SCOBAs, we collaborate with schools and the community to form financial empowerment platforms. The parents are organized into savings and lending groups based in schools. They meet weekly to save money, share knowledge and borrow to start income generating activities. In the weekly meetings parents are equipped with financial literacy, entrepreneurship, agricultural skills and knowledge that they utilise to effectively invest money they have borrowed to boost their incomes.
During the weekly meetings, our staff and the schools leaderships sensitize parents about the importance of education. Parents also get a chance to interact with teachers about their children`s education.
Young Savers Clubs(YSC)
Through the Young Savers Clubs (YCS), we train school going children how to save and invest while they are still young which has been missing in adults. Children are also equipped with leadership skills through running of their groups and the investments they start from their savings. All these skills and knowledge are not taught in school and therefore we believe that this program will help raise the next generation of entrepreneurs who are financially literate, can save and start enterprises to reduce the high youths unemployment rates.
Youth Social Entrepreneurship Mentorship Program (Y-SEMP)
The Y-SEMP project trains youths in social entrepreneurship, creative thinking and social innovation. This project is essentially designed to offer them the best training to support them in social entrepreneurship and empower more youth led enterprises within the community in a bid to curb high youth unemployment rate in Uganda and put young people at the center of solving social problems.
