Sam, a SIFAT graduate in Uganda, is leading his community to be more food secure.
Project: To mobilize the community to food security and other microenterprise projects.
SIFAT graduate Sam is helping his community become more food secure by teaching participants in his project simple drip irrigation techniques, such as plastic drip bottles, buckets, etc.; having them prepare land to plant; and providing seeds to selected families and providing skills on how to take care of the gardens and harvesting. The outcome of the proceeds from the harvest will be for family consumption and surplus for sale to earn income for taking care of other family needs, such as school fees, medical bills and other expenses. The project schedule is expected to last seven months right from the first phase to harvest. We expect to have 100 families, which will take care of 200 more indirect and other extended family members in the community. The needed materials to initiate the project include garden tools (which the community will provide). Training will be performed by agriculturalist specialists
