About Us

The organization has over twelve years experience working with development partners in capacity building in South Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda, Congo, Somalia, Tanzania, Burundi and Rwanda. We have trained over 3500 development workers in various developments related thematic areas..

We have further conducted over fifty participatory mid term and end term evaluations in the region. Our package is results-oriented and hands-on, enabling our trainees and partners to learn and apply the skills gained on conclusion of the exercise planned. The organization provides a depth of collective technical expertise and experiences as well as demonstrated ability to work in a variety of cultural settings.


One of the key reasons that there is no meaningful development in Africa is the lack of capacity by beneficiaries to implement sustainable programmes. Capacity Africa Institute values the communities we work in as engines and classrooms for knowledge dissemination. Through our training arm, we deliver training programmes to civil servants, development workers and young people. Our training techniques ensure that knowledge dissemination is a continuous process, from the young to the old, from school going young adults to professionals. The benefits of our courses include:-

  • Internationally prepared training materials
  • Training materials based on research and global best practice
  • An in-depth pre-course needs analysis
  • Recent real life case studies
  • Comprehensive course material
  • Unparalleled networking opportunities with professional peers
  • Exposure to the best world class practices in management and leadership

We are known for being practical, focused, and results oriented. We aim to provide flexibility in our services in order to meet the array of needs and constraints facing public sector and private organizations today.
