Our founding story

How Cloud Empowerment came about

Steve, Paul and Pat in CA
Pat Montani M.S.M
-Canadian tech entrepreneuer, philanthropist
-founder of
Bicycles for-Humanity-a grassroots movement, delivered 325k+ used bikes to rural Africa
-Founder iempowerment-an innovation that delivers education and learning on a memory stick to rural communities in Africa.
-Awarded the
Meritorious Service Medal in 2016 and Whistler citizen of the year 2019
Paul Sherwen
-Successful British/Ugandan entreprenuer
-3x British Cycling Champion,
-7x tour de france racer,
-33 years tour de france commentator
-lived in Uganda and has a special place in his heart for Karamoja, having fond memories of hunting there as a child.
Karamoja is a small, breathtaking remote region in Uganda where life revolves around cattle, poverty and firearms.
Paul loved what Pat was doing and joined him as a partner.


-As the cattle wars were ending in Karamoja, Pat and Paul brought the i-empowerment innovation and 5,000 bikes to the region, to kickstart an economy around bikes, and empower the people of Karamoja.


-Pat & Paul met Alfred, a native of Karamoja & a fresh Computer Science graduate from Makerere University. Alfred volunteered and implemented the iempowerment innovation across Karamoja region.

-A team in Karamoja was formed and set out Common Sense Community Development (CSCD)-a change model centered around “a-hand-up against a-hand-out”

-In 2016, Pat and Paul helped kickstart Kara-tunga-a sustainable tourism company and the annual tour of karamoja-Uganda’s biggest MTB event, to preserve the culture and build an economy around cultural and bike adventure tourism.
Sadly in Dec 2018, Paul Sherwen passes on peacefully in his sleep


-Alfred deeply influenced by Pat's mentorship resigned from his IT job in the city and together they co-founded Cloud Empowerment.
-Their vision was to leverage the internet's vast potential to create economic opportunities for Karamoja while providing cost-effective services to global brands.

-During this time, Alfred also formed a strong bond with Mike Kirk, the founder of Goodmove. Introduced by Pat Montani, Mike had been involved with the Vancouver chapter of Bicycles for Humanity since 2014.

-Under Pat's mentorship, Mike learned valuable life lessons, with empowering others central to them all. Alfred and Mike's friendship flourished as they worked on building their own businesses, sharing their experiences and aspirations


-Tragically, in April 2021, Pat passes on after a brief battle with Pancreatic cancer. His passing left an immense void in our hearts, but his legacy and teachings continue to guide us.

-In honor of Pat's remarkable legacy, Alfred and Mike realigned the strategy of Cloud Empowerment to align more closely with Goodmove. This shift allows us to assist small brands and retailers with their daily operations, providing them with the tools and support they need to thrive. Simultaneously, it enables us to continue empowering the people and larger community of Karamoja, embodying Pat's philosophy of "a hand up over a handout."


Purpose is at our core.
We are merging the limitless possibilities of the digital age with the heart and soul of a compassionate community.
