Progress Report on Our Ugele Project: Empowering Communities through Sustainable Farming Unlocking Potential in Ugele

During our inaugural visit to Ugele, we conducted an in-depth resource and waste mapping. The discoveries were inspiring:

  • Community Enthusiasm: The residents are eager to learn business management and tomato farming. Their enthusiasm is our greatest resource, driving the project’s momentum.
  • Land Commitment: Despite space constraints, the community dedicated half a plot of land for our demo farm and greenhouse—a testament to their commitment to progress

Our Game Plan

Here’s how we’re turning this potential into progress:

  • Sustainable Tomato Farming Training: We’re equipping the community with skills in sustainable tomato farming. A communal greenhouse will serve as the heart of this initiative, providing a nurturing space for seedlings accessible to all for planting and sales.
  • Sack and Bag Farming: Introducing innovative sack and bag farming techniques to help residents maximize their limited land resources.
  • WhatsApp Learning Platform: Creating a dynamic learning community via WhatsApp, where residents can ask questions, share knowledge, and receive ongoing education on business and farming.

Key Takeaways

  • People Power: In Ugele, the most valuable asset is the people’s willingness to learn and contribute. Their energy and dedication are propelling the project forward.
  • Land Preservation: The drive for development has reduced available farmland in Ugele, pushing residents to cultivate land outside their community. This highlights the need for strategies that preserve rural agricultural land.
  • Tailored Approaches: Each community has unique resources and challenges. Flexibility and customization in our approach are crucial for addressing local needs effectively and ensuring sustainable impact.
