We met Okot Lawrence, a farmer who was part of a training under AVSI’s SKY project in 2017. Skilling Youths in Agribusiness, AVSI partnered with public and private sector entities.
Lawrence was trained in horticulture and business management.
After the training, he started production, growing tomatoes, eggplants, onions, cabbages. And from the sales he got money, bought an ox plough, then bought a motorbike to transport his produce. He has since bought land, built houses from the profits of the farm sells.
I didn’t know I could attain so much from farming. My life and that of my family is better.Okot Lawrence, a farmer who was part of a training under AVSI’s SKY project in 2017
He is now sharing the skills with other youths in the community.
