Students at the Bukwaga Primary School in Sironko have learnt modern farming methods and the responsibility that comes with maintaining a garden, thanks to Stephen Washaki, their head teacher.
In order to purchase seeds, Steven obtained a loan from Bayport Uganda. The students learnt how to grow and look after tomatoes, cabbages, green peppers, eggplants, and cassava. The crops help to supplement the meals at the school and support the community.
“This was a great help to all of us as we had experienced famine before,” said Steven. Steven not only fed the community but he also educated his students.
