For every three (3) Ugandans that make it out of poverty, two (2) fall back in. To reduce poverty and promote shared prosperity - increased agriculture production and growing non-farm self-employment have to occur.

One of our first villages we connected with and trained!
This village was split by the government to be able to better account individuals living there. You will see this scenario in others we trained.
The word got out from our Namiguwa training day, so we had a bit show up in this village.
While we don't have favorites we definitely loved our time here getting to know this village and training them!
Our local Ambassador, Charles Mukwaya lives in this village!
This is where our corporate offices are located and where our leadership teams and communities gather! Home to our first church plant too!
