Unlike the United States and most developed countries of the world, many natives living in urban, rural and wilderness regions of Uganda do not have access to the global food system, with its sophisticated refrigeration and advanced transportation. Many people are undernourished, some are literally starving to death.

Uganda Map 250Ugandan born Barnabas Mwesiga has a dream: To feed his people and train them to be self-sufficient through small village farms. His dream is about hope. Hope for a well-fed, economically strong future.

The initial stages of the Barnabas Project, in progress on a plot of land in the Mbarara District of Uganda, includes 60 small food gardens, two fish ponds, chickens and a piggery.

The crops, cows, chickens, pigs and fish being raised and harvested here will be a model for the training of more local farmers to grow and sell their own food.
