Kirabo Doors of Hope Foundation was set up in 2011 by Tony Ssembatya Kimbowa with co-founder Teopista Kimbowa in response to the then growing surge of non-school going children. The initial idea was to address child schooling, poverty and to empower, enable and inspire those born out of extreme wanting conditions. Since then, the foundation has grown to empower girls, young mothers and the general rural community into self-sustaining skills.
