There have been long periods of droughts followed by floods thus reducing food supply for the country.
What is happening now is that farmers arte being helped to reduce reliance on the natural weather conditions for instance by digging… Continue

I'm having dinner at MunnaMasaka's. It is a small eatingplace that opened just a couple of days back. I'm having dinner with a former evoke agent. He's passing through Kampala on one of his missions and to give him a taste of Ugandan food, we're having dinner here. You see, this place prides in serving the freshest of foods. All the food served was harvested not more than 24 hours back. This is as a result of the campaign to grow food in everyone's backyard.
What we are having today is… Continue

My country is generally an agriultural country. Brazil does football; we do farming!! But most of the farming is at a subsistance level and not very profitable. So more and more people are leaving the villages- where there is abundant land and comingto the city in search for more profitable work. In the city, there isn't land to carry out any form of farming. My advice therefore to a member of my community is that after acc**ulating a little money in the city, they should use it to develop… Continue

In 2020, I'd still be based in Kampala but would be moving around a lot -all over the continent. You see, through innovation in our classrooms, we would have developed productive manpower in all sectors of the economy. And we'd be trying to help other communities all over Africa to achieve that too. So anyway, in 2020 all sectors of my nation's economy are flourishing! We're producing enough organic food to feed ourselves, our children, for our industries and some to export.… Continue

What you have matters more than what you lack - If you’ve got a bicycle, consider what you can build based on that. That's very important for a social innovator. The most important thing is to get started - with whatever you have

What you have matters more than what you lack - that's very important because we usually tend to focus on what we lack. A social innovator should start with what he has and get moving!!!
