MY TURNING POINT

“With perseverance I’m gradually shifting from peasantry to commercial farming. Gone are days when you had to sit down and lament about the unfair world with a wide difference between the rich and the poor. I believe that there is no need to lament; the power to success is within our hands”. HB says.

With the knowledge I acquired from the traings held by Kitovu Mobile I  started growing vegetable using back yard farming system plus coffee as a long term crop that can fetch more money. I have no doubt that it was a wise decision made. Currently I have 1500 coffee plants of which 700(47%) plants have reached maturity stage and my harvest is promising. Just only this season I have been able to harvest 1000kgs of dry coffee.

I’m happy that I have been identified by Kitovu Mobile as a progressive farmer who can teach others using a demostration method  and as a result, I have received an in calf -Friesian dairy cow. I can see a bright future ahead and my colleagues are admiring my status.

KITOVU MOBILE MY HERO

“I can’t imagine how I would be if it was not Kitovu Mobile” David said.

David is among the many with similar words that cherish the work of Kitovu Mobile. He graduated from the Mobile farm school in 2013 and since then his income has exponentially grown bringing a simile to his face.

After school I decided to engage myself in two business areas namely farming with emphasis on crop production and trade with focus on establishing my own shop. I gave farming the 1st priority where by the proceeds from the crop sales were to help me establish my own shop. I specialized in passion fruit and tomato growing and within two farming seasons I had already established a shop. From the crop sales I generated over seven million shillings that helped me start off with a retail shop within my community which later on turned into a whole sale shop. After three years in business, I have been able to buy land approximately 6 acres worth 18 million shillings which I think is going to be my starting point to become a commercial farmer. Using my land I have plans to establish 2500 coffee plants and as I speak now I have already planted 600(24%) coffee plant. I have no doubt that you can start small and grow big and I’m big. David said.

"I CAN'T WAIT TO SMILE.."

"This is our chicken project"
"This is our chicken project"

Youth develop a smile on observing their project progressively develop with tangible results. Over 65 youth who benefited from the piggery and goat project have a reason to smile when they realized that 100% of their piglets where expecting to furrow and pass on the offspring to their colleagues. During their discussion they said; we received six pigs but in the first round we expect at a least an average of 60 piglets. “This is the multiplier effect we wanted”, one of the trainees said”.

Not only have we benefited from the pigs but even our fellow youth who could not manage pigs received goats and chicken. Though goats are not prolific as pigs but we believe we shall also get there when all our friends in the cycle will receive a goat. “The chicken project is easy to manage and we love it”. Said one of the girls

Initially the projects were given to hard working group members who had acquired the skills and could properly manage the projects, but later on even the laggards will benefit.

We appreciate support from our development partners and friends who have tirelessly contributed technical and financial support to this noble cause.
