After Ivory Coast, we landed in East Africa. Uganda’s biggest town, Kampala, is spreading on 7 hills, as if it was dropped among a garden. We switched from the Abidjan’s taxis to the bodas-bodas, motorcycles sneaking their way in the traffic. From being named Toubabous, we got used to the new designation “Muzungu”.
From the frontier with South-Sudan to the Nile source, Uganda displays many breath-taking landscapes.
Farmers, middle mans, market… a system which proves itself efficient yet still needs to evolve.
Some others (YICE, Kyakabunga Dairy Farmers Cooperative…) are trying to educate the farmers into a more efficient way of producing. Dealing with a community helps to empower the producers, and might reduce the losses.
If the agro-alimentary system does work, there is nevertheless many farmers becoming entrepreneurs to try and solve those problems.
Thanks to Godfrey and Gaddafi who have been our hosts during two months at Bisina home!
We are now settled in Tanzania, where it can always prove useful to know a bit of Swahili
