OUR APPROACH

Kula develops entrepreneurs in Rwanda through a 15-month fellowship that
provides industry training, business investment, and life and leadership skills.

STEP ONE:
RELATIONSHIP BUILDING

We conduct extensive baseline assessments with cooperatives and spend relational time with our people to know them both qualitatively and quantitatively.

STEP FIVE:
IMPACT MEASUREMENT

We collect quantitative and qualitative data to monitor and evaluate the impact of our work. We then determine the best way to amend the fellowship to support each person towards empowerment.
