The Karamoja.org Way
Our background delivering 160,000 bicycles to 13 African countries taught us a lot about empowerment and how to best engage the local people. iEmpowerment a turnkey education and healthcare program delivered on a memory stick, proved in many of our ideas on capacity building, that our focus on sales and marketing, on templating and empowering others and using the internet and new cloud based solutions When we started Kara-tunga.com, the Tour of Karamoja, a new IT service company and as they all became successful, we realized worked and were key to developing new economies and opportunities in the developing world.
To do this, meant a shift in thinking, it meant that instead of outsiders leading the path forward , local people would take that responsibility to teach, train and implement programs, employing local people and inspiring others to do the same. With leadership within the region, they could now empower all who visited the region to join them in delivering a new model of empowerment to the people. We have implemented this across all of our tourism programs and we are proud to say that we are 100% owned and operated by local Karamojong community members. It is our goal in the future to share this new model with all communities globally and for all tourists who join us , we are equally keen to share our model with them.
In a globally connected world, technology plays a very important role in delivering high value services, attracting clients, tourists and opportunity globally, while taking out the inefficient layers of bureaucracy and ineptness. This one shift is the key to development in a global society, high value efficient models win and in Karamoja, we simply decided that we would lead in all aspects of development and in doing so, not only create a new model, but in time have a model that we could share with other developing communities, who wanted to create a better life and greater opportunity for their people.
Karamoja, Leading Africa Forward is a big goal and one that we are well on our way to achieving. The model is very simple, and we are keen to share it with all globally, just as we are keen to share our iEmpowerment program on the memory stick and on the internet with all globally. In addition to being a resource for all, Karamoja.org, will also be a platform for learning, sharing and exchanging ideas on a new Common Sense Capacity Building Model.
A desire to change, partners who believe that it is possible all coupled together with technology to help sell and deliver new Capacity Building Solutions thst can scale and be exported is what Karamoja.org is all about.
