Model Villages bearing fruit in Rural Transformation across Uganda

Over the 52 years of independence, Uganda has evolved from one level to another in terms of household incomes and livelihoods with the economy growing consistently at an average of 6.4 percent since 2002, moving towards the government’s vision of a transformed Ugandan society from a peasant to a modern and prosperous country within 30 years.
The Poverty Eradication Department of the State House headed by Mrs. Joan Kakwenzire, the Senior Presidential Advisor on poverty Alleviation, set out in 2003 to address challenges to agricultural production and create new horizons for the populations in areas where potential to produce had been cited, especially for matooke, coffee among other locally grown crops.
The Atamba mixed farm in Mukono district is one of over 20 model villages established by the department to empower rural communities to deliver products of higher q

Farmers have much need for financial assistance but the challenge is majorly lack of sufficient insight on how to obtain and efficiently utilise the available financial resources with the former being a result of lack of sufficient knowledge on competitive project proposal writing.
An Agricultural Education Centre would be a one stop center with agricultural documentaries, literature, reference documents and agricultural teachers where the literature and other vital information could best be delivered to the farmers in the local languages based on the location as there is already a high rate of illiteracy among rural farmers.
Through such centres in every region, the Central Government and other stakeholders in the sector would deliver information about agricultural policy and initiatives along with information from the National Agricultural Advisory Services and research findings from the National Agricultural Research Organisation.

Nicole Metz Dear Solomon, thanks for your post on this platform. I agree with you about the importance of quality information and Knowledge systems, as farmer entrepreneurs (of all ages) need good training and access to the Knowledge they need to build a profitable company. I don't agree with you that an Agricultural Education Centre would be a one-stop shop to do all this. To serve farmers' needs, a variety of interventions is needed; and networking contacts, e.g. in the agri-finance sector, are part of that. My suggestion would be you look into the Knowledge Base pages of this online platform, and engage with particular debates on finance issues, as this seems to be your key interest! thank you.

I have a passion for African youth and the need to redefine how agribusiness is presented to them.

A lot is talked about. It's all vital. But here is what fellow stakeholders should tell the youth on our precious continent.

I am Solomon Kalema Musisi, former president of the School of Agricultural Sciences, Makerere University, Kampala and this is the message for which I need you all to join me and take across Africa.
