Twesigye Patience

I am Twesigye Patience aged 21 married with one son. Am from Butende parish, Kitayunjwa subcounty found in Kamuli district. Mr. Balande, chairman of the Parish Development Committee Butende sensitized us about the AWF project at St Marys’ Church Budongo, we formed a youth group of 30 members.

We were given free demo seeds which planted 0.25-acre garden of green chili. Out of my chili sales, I was able to get 400,000/- which I re-invest in goat rearing and planting egg plants. Am really gratefully to the AWF project, it has exposed me to many things like adopting the improve ways of farming for example use of pesticides, insect traps and fertilser application. The project has given me an opportunity to interact with different project officials from both VEDCO and Plan international who come over to visit me and this has boosted my morale in farming. At household level our financial status has improved ever since we started selling chili to KK, this has reduced domestic violence in our family which was caused by tack of home essentials.
