Spotlight Feature : Johnson Kibirige

CEO and Co-Founder Wion Motors Ltd. 

Wion Motors is an auto-repair social enterprise. In addition to vehicle repairs, Wion Motors engages in social impact activities such as training women to become auto mechanics and afforestation projects to tackle the effects of climate change.  

Wion’s goal is to be the leading automotive social enterprise in East Africa, with a chain of vehicle repair shops all  over the region. 

Since childhood, Johnson has had a love for cars. In 2005, Johnson received a government scholarship to study Mechanical engineering at the prestigious Kyambogo University in Kampala.  

In 2017, Johnson’s passion for auto-care and bad encounters with local mechanics inspired  him to establish his own auto repair shop.

To date, Wion Motors has trained over 63 people with the majority going off  to set up their own auto repair shop. By 2035, Johnson aims to have trained over 1000 youth with a  focus on attracting more women into the auto-repair industry across East Africa.
