This project is to install a water system at Peace Demonstration Farm in Uganda. The purpose of the farm is to teach Ugandans to expand their thinking about farming, and to teach them new and innovative farming techniques. This will help people pull themselves out of poverty by giving them a hand up, instead of a hand out. The farm will use the water well to irrigate crops, and the well will serve as the primary source of clean water for the villages of Nyenje and Budugala.
This project will give middle school students from low-income communities access to the inspiring learning experiences they deserve in science, technology, engineering and math subjects. Students will work with mentors from tech companies, including Google, in CA, MA, NY, & NC, in afternoon "apprenticeship" classes to build critical academic skills and raise school and career aspirations.
