An additional Vocational Training incentive was added to the Mwogo Centre in August 2019. The purpose is to train local youth with a variety of disabilities in agricultural skills that will last them a lifetime. It’s a low start-up, high impact vocational project embracing all abilities.
5 acres of land were donated by a community member to start the project. Seven of the lowest income families with disabled youth are working together, tending crops and livestock to feed themselves and to sell.
From tilling to harvesting, the farmers are learning to fulfil the very baseline of human survival and creating the prospect of poverty alleviation.
