Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.

- Nelson Mandela

KUZA is training the next generation of leaders in Uganda. 

KUZA UGANDA is a non-governmental organization dedicated to the transformation of students, families and communities through higher education, mentorship, and leadership development.

KUZA is a “Bantu” word that means flourishing to highest potential which clearly explains what KUZA does with young people from all across Uganda.

Our vision arises from the firm conviction that young people have all it takes to spearhead transformation in their lives, families, communities and nation and this potential needs harnessing. We therefore invest in potential young people to become transformational no-excuse servant leaders who will champion transformation to their communities and the nation.

We believe in giving opportunities to potential yet disadvantaged students from all over Uganda to become courageous transformers of society. We facilitate their growth, unlock their potential, light up their candles and create opportunities for them to shine!
