The project aims at social entrepreneurship among Uganda youth, developing sustainable agricultural practices and employment in the sector, by organising trainings for 100 young people on good agricultural practices, post-harvest handling, farming as a business. We give practical trainings at 2 demo-plots and through organising Farmers Markets.
Special attention is paid to environmental friendly practices and food security issues. Project contributes to help farming communities to move from subsistence to market-oriented production in order to increase their incomes.
