Stephen Kakaira, Director

"I was blessed to receive Kisoboka’s support which enabled me to obtain an education, and now with my family I am giving back by founding and supporting Shalom Restoration Academy, a Christian primary school in the village of Mukono."

Stephen Kakaira is a director of Kisoboka Uganda, Inc. He was born and raised in Uganda where he both witnessed and experienced much of the suffering and inadequate resources that are prevalent in poor communities.
