Our team is a group of very diverse individuals from the most war-torn and politically corrupt countries in central Africa. We hold degrees in electrical engineering, computer science, masters in logistics, carpentry, hospitality management, accounting, and art. Due to life-hardships, we have all ended up together in Kakuma. We still have hope to create better lives and this hope is strengthened with the start of Kakuma Ventures.
