Joshua is the executive director and co-founder of Kigezi Coffee Development Academy (KCDA), an organization he has led since 2014. Before founding KCDA, Joshua was the programmes director Africa challenge Foundation (AFRICAF), an organization that made his vision for youth and community empowerment very much alive.

He is passionate about farmers producing quality coffee to fetch more money that will in turn help to boost their household incomes.

He is currently working with 9 committed young people and his organization supports 1200 farmers.

He is committed to increasing jobs for young people and looks forward to creating 25 jobs at just the head office by 2020—and supporting more farmers to self-empowerment and sustainability.
