When we started the Food For Thought programme, we had funding to pay a Key Farmer Trainer to visit schools once every few weeks to train the children in organic//sustainable food growing skills. Sadly, we no longer have funds for that strategy. We also found that the teachers allowed the KFTs to work without themselves getting involved. So, we changed the strategy and now focus on 2 Garden Teachers (also called Agriculture Teachers). To ensure teachers have the skills, every December FFT holds two residential workshops one in Mubende and one in Tororo.
