In 2012, Rebecca Kaduru co-founded KadAfrica. Under her leadership, KadAfrica has grown from a backyard farming project to an out-grower network of more than 2,000 girls and women between the ages of 14-24 and 10,000 community members growing passion fruit in the Western Region of Uganda. KadAfrica’s innovative, market-based approach to empowering out of school girls has been recognized in Forbes Magazine, Deutche Welle, UN African Renewal Magazine, and been awarded by Ashoka and MasterCard Foundation, the SEED Awards, the African Food Prize, and Nestle’s Creating Shared Value Prize.
