We believe in big handprints. 

About Kua

It all began...

It was mid-2017 and two Australian students found themselves spending a study break in rural Uganda. Inspired by the energy, passion and quirks of the people they met, they decided to start something back in Sydney. 

As housemates

They rounded up a team of six, rented a share-house and spent a year living together, cooking together, building a world-positive startup together … and drinking lots of specialty Ugandan coffee. 

For happy days

Now, our team live by the motto of ‘happy days’ - a simple phrase to remind us of a world and culture we’d like to be a part of. We’re working towards happy days for our stakeholders, children and those experiencing the mounting injustices of climate change.

Most companies have footprints. We’re striving to leave a handprint: a net-positive impact on society and the environment. How?
