Bwindi Partners with HHI for Workshops
Bwindi was excited to partner with Healing Hands International to host its first two Sustainable Agricultural Workshops in 2021.
The workshops were geared toward help local parents with income training, specifically pertaining to agricultural methods.
“It was an enjoyable training and I am sure our parents will put all they trained in into implementation. It was so nice of you to support us in this.” said Director Francis Byamukama.
We also want to thank Healing Hands International for their partnership in hosting successful workshops.
Bwaswa is located in Bwindi in kanungu district; this village is located 9km from Buhoma where Bwindi junior school is located. It is far deep on the mountains and the entire communities are farmers growing Tea as a major crop and bananas. These particular workshops was mainly attended by women with only few men. Here is the reaction of the participants;
Arinitwe Hope is married with two children and she grows tea and bananas this is what she said “This method of farming has come to improve our financial status and increase our house hold income. For so long we have been growing tea and forgetting food crops because we lack the skills but now we have it we shall now grow both tea and vegetables and also practice the composting method to improve our soil” thanks HHI.
