Here in Uganda, I am a small-scale mixed subsistence farmer and an agricultural extension worker. I am specialized in horticulture, poultry, cuniculture and duck farming.

I want to inspire the other people, especially the youth, to take up farming because it is life changing and awakens hope to change the world.
