Kshitij Gheewala

After working for 10 years in the U.K as a trader and as a management consultant, he moved to Uganda with a dream of supporting the community and building a vocational college that supports young adults who will in turn support the community as well.

The project started with two sewing machines inside the house of a friend and has now grown over the years from renting a building that had no doors or windows, for classes and later to acquiring land and construction of a four classroom block, a store, a BCP workshop, four stance latrines and other external works. Auro now fully owns the structures dramatically improving the quality of education that we can provide to our students. 70% our students were engaged during the construction effort – providing them meaningful experience and also creating a strong local community bond with its efforts to support development.

In addition, Kshitij runs an HR training and consultancy firm in Kampala and he has an Msc in international business and finance and worked with Capgemini, London, Chantilly University and Accenture University in Chicago to mention but a few. He has over seventeen years training and management, consulting experience, advising and coaching clients in the UK, France, USA, Uganda, Kenya and South Africa.

In addition he has a passion for personal development transformation and healing, and he has begun to developing programs that empower individuals called Kanagara.
