Who are We?
In 2011, the World Economic Forum (WEF), recognising the immense value and potential of youth to improve the state of the world, established the Global Shapers Community, a community of motivated youth under the age of 33 who are exceptional in their talent and their leadership potential. Global Shapers are also dedicated to improving the state of the world by achieving positive change in their local communities through local and global solutions.
The Kampala Hub, which is Uganda's first chapter of the Global Shapers Community, is one such small group of youth from diverse backgrounds who strive to make a positive impact through projects and regular engagement with thought leaders.
The Kampala Hub meets regularly for substantive meetings, with additional meetings convened by individual Shapers in the context of projects.
The Kampala Hub is strongly grounded in values of democracy, environmental sustainability, entrepreneurial solution-seeking, and respect and responsibility towards each other.

Young open-minded, extraordinary individuals with great potential for future leadership roles in society, and with verifiable achievements.
