The institute is committed to building, in a logical and incremental manner, a sustainable research activity, guided by quality and originality. The researches we have conducted for different organizations have contributed to the body of knowledge and has influenced the economic development and innovation, both nationally and regionally. Key activities have included:
We have supported organizations, businesses and individuals to carry out timely assessments or needs assessment.

We have trained a number of organizations and individuals in research methods, baseline survey, feasibility studies, environmental and situation analysis. The organizations included; Epilepsy Support Association Uganda (ESAU) on Epilepsy cases, Nation Union of disabled Persons in Uganda (NUDIPU) on Disabilities and land cases and NUWODU where we formulated their strategic plan and many others.

Information management:
We have facilitated easy access of modern information technology to the community using user friendly approaches of information exchange through hands on training.
Organizations require timely, consistent access to trustworthy information from within their organizations and beyond. To achieve this, an organization must implement an Enterprise Information Management (EIM) strategy that combines familiar and new methods for addressing data integration, data quality, reconciliation, and data management. Managing enterprise information is an ongoing process that requires constant tuning as the business grows and evolves. Africa Mentoring Institute’s information management strategy has provided a way for its clients and the institute itself to set up flexible frameworks that meet the rapidly changing information needs of the individuals and businesses they are involved in or encounter.

Information technology has become a potent force for transforming social, economic, and political life globally. Yet the uneven distribution of IT within societies and across the globe is resulting in a “digital divide” between those who have access to information resources and those who do not. Therefore, under the information management goal, the following are some of the main activities that have been done:

Training in computer literacy.
Database design and management.
Website design and internet training.
Networking with other service providers for and with information linkages.
Establishing community information centres.
