Vegetables production plays an important role in human diet. In Uganda the inclusion of Vegetables in agriculture is an important undertaking because unlike other agriculture commodities, it has been realized that it can be practiced profitably at both large and small scale. Over and above its potential for being a profitable commodity, horticulture production plays an important role in socio-economic development as it alleviates the current unemployment status by creating jobs
The critical changes in the global economy as while as the changes in Uganda as a whole has resulted in great number of currently unemployed youth .They are content with miserably low wages because of fear of losing their jobs. As a consequence, youth are becoming the poorest part of the population especially in developing countries like Uganda.
The goal of this project is engage the youth to provide ecologically clean vegetables and fruits to their communities while raising a reasonable income for them selves during off season. In order to reach this goal we want to create an off season vegetable farm run by 10 youth as way to demonstrate and encourage other youth to get involved in off season vegetable growing.
Support and provide the district with off seasons vegetables. Create jobs for the youth. Raise income for the youth. More youth getting involved in offseason vegetable growing. Vegetables in the food basket of the local communities increased. Increase export of vegetables to surrounding countries like Kenya, Tanzania, and Sudan.
