Centre for Skills and Innovation (CSI) is a non-profit, non-partisan, voluntary organization that uses ICT to empower young people to succeed in education & work. CSI aims for a society in which young people have the right skills, leadership abilities and tools to enable them to succeed in today’s digital world.  

We do these through research, advocacy, field projects, education & training, STEM activities/competitions, and social events to reach our target beneficiaries. It is our shared belief that embracing digital technology is no longer a choice but a necessity of our time. CSI was established in July 2019 and is based in Lira, Uganda.
