  • £6 pays for two African hoes, for digging the school garden
  • £17 pays for the Key Farmer Trainer to work with the pupils for one month
  • £600 pays for one school to have a Key Farmer Trainer work with all the pupils for one year - and also pays for tools, seeds, fencing etc for the school food garden.
  • £1200 pays for a Food For Thought District Coordinator for one year, working one day per week.

Primary school education is now free in Uganda, following debt cancellation in the 1990s. Agriculture is back in the primary school curriculum. But many teachers have received very little practical training in farming - and very, very few know the importance of sustainable, organic growing, until they see the results!

Over £500 was received – enough to train 2 teachers in beekeeping plus provide their schools with 8 beehives, 8 Queen bees, 1 protective suit, a smoker, gloves, a white plastic bucket (for collecting the honey!) and fencing for the apiary.
