Ugandan communities to be taught farm skills

04 December 2015

A NEW scheme to help people out of poverty in Uganda has been launched by the charity Samaritan’s Purse, in partnership with the Church in Uganda. The charity will offer training in farming practices, and explore ways in which families could generate income.

In the dioceses of Masindi-Kitara and West Lango, 480 churches are involved in the project, which seeks to help 9600 families.

“A hungry person cannot do anything,” the Revd Vincent Ogwang, of West Lango diocese, said, “because without strength you cannot work; without strength, nobody can go to school, and because of that we want to say the issue of food is very important. This part of the nation has suffered for many decades.”
