about the school
Our school of farming is based in Kabubbu, a village in the heart of rural Uganda.
Students are taught how to grow, maintain and then harvest fruit from their own trees. Graduates are then given support by Mr. Augustine Napagi (the head teacher) throughout their first few years of farming to make sure their orchards grow as much fruit as possible.
The amazing thing about the school is that it provides our graduates with a sustainable source of income. Each student is given the means to grow food for themselves, their families and to sell at local markets.
Every penny donated to the school is spent on the ground in Uganda so it’s well worth donating your feed your friends rewards.
