Pat Montani 


Pat has spent 40 years,  starting and growing technology companies, my first love is cycling and  wanting to help others,  started Bicycles for Humanity  www.bicycles-for-humanity.org that has since turned into a global grassroots movement  and delivered over 200 Bicycle Empowerment Centres to 13 African countries with a total of almost 155,000 bicycles.  Pat understood the  power and the value of Education,  Healthcare and Empowerment .  He  founded iEmpowerment to help the people of Karamoja and all of Africa take the next steps to a better life through the  deployment of technology.  Pat  was deeply moved by the  people of Karamoja, their determination  and desire for a better life for all .  He   along with Paul Sherwen  and Theo Voss who founded  Kara-Tunga a cultural tourism business in Karamoja, with the simple goal of  working wth the people of Karamoja to not only  grow programs  like kara-tunga.com  but to  share with all  the incredible power of  learning through the  Ekokwa program.  Karamoja has become my second home and like Paul and Theo, I am super keen  to  show you Kidepo, Karamoja and the best part of Africa.


Pat is a Rotarian and has worked with hundreds of Rotary clubs across all of Africa on the deployment of innovation solutions in many areas.


In 2017 Pat was awarded the Meritorious   Service   Medal by Canada for his contribution  to society and  helping  others.

Overview Background


Our journey to start the Tour of Karamoja and   the Karamoja Safari Lodge grew out of our  love for cycling and  Africa, especially Uganda and our  desire to show the world  Uganda , especially Karamoja.  Karamoja, the North Eastern part of  Uganda is a truly incredible place  and  a place that  will draw you in and you will want to join us in helping the Karamojong.  Education, opportunity and  access to a better life for all is what all of us want.  I invite you to join us  on a safari  or a bike ride in Africa and allow us to   share my Africa  and life with you.
