Kiteka is the first all-female, all-mobile digital outsourcing network. We enable female entrepreneurs in Uganda and beyond to access the global digital economy by providing smartphone technology, training, and connections to international businesses in need of intelligent digital outsourcing.THE PROBLEM
Owning a smartphone increases income for over half of female entrepreneurs in low and middle income countries. But in Sub-Saharan Africa, women are 23% less likely than men to own a mobile phone - and 64% of women don't own a phone at all. Kiteka is here to address the imbalance.
With roots in the UK and Uganda, we launched as 100 Phones in Kampala in 2016. With the support of partners and donors, we connect female small business owners to smartphone technology and training. The impact of our work stretches beyond these individuals to their families and their wider communities.THE FUTURE
We have big ambitions for the future: to become self-sustaining by taking on digital outsourcing work, providing new sources of income and knowledge for the Kiteka network, and an innately capable and committed workforce for international clients.
