Into Your Hands Africa (IYHA) is teaching farming techniques to new and existing farmers in 10 villages in Kikinene, Uganda. This Demonstration Farm Project comprises two interconnected components, a Farm Field School (FFS) and a Master Farm Program (MFP). The steps being taken are: 1) purchase land, 2) public communication, 3) introductory meeting, 4) recruit 25 participants, 5) 2-day lead trainer’s farm visit, 6) 6 months of business and agricultural classes, 7) harvest and selling, 8) open house day for 400 people, and 9) pick top farmers as future trainers. This project empowers marginalized people in rural Uganda by fostering opportunity, learning, and self-sufficiency. A Project Grant of $7,900 from the AllPeopleBeHappy foundation is being used to support this effort.
