Acc-Plus Foundation

Nsambya, ,

Acc-Plus Foundation is a social enterprise that provides the business support to women and youth led start-ups in order to enable them not only survive through their first year of business but also create competitive and sustainable companies. Our first project was offering free business training to groups of business women of Kawempe Division in Kampala, Uganda. This project ran from July 2013 to June 2014 and had very positive but limited results on the business women due to the limited resources at the foundation’s disposal. We currently have a project of providing free business management training to members of traders’ associations in Kampala, Uganda.
