Update Agripreneurship Alliance

Blended learning Training – Entrepreneurship in Agribusiness

The cohorts of students in the 6 Universities in Uganda, Kenya and Somaliland all completed the 2020-2021 Training and submitted a total of 35 business plans. There were some particularly interesting projects this time including a silk farm in Kenya.  The University of Bukavu in the Democratic Republic of Congo was a new University, and the training is still underway.  We are particularly pleased with the results of these cohorts given all the challenges that trainers had during the COVID-19 pandemic.  The Universities were partially or fully closed, and many students went back to their home villages where internet connectivity is frequently very poor.

In November we are delighted to able to travel to Africa again and will be conducting a week-long Training of Trainers workshop in Uganda.  This will be for new Trainers from our current Universities, and we are very pleased that two new Universities are joining - the University of Namibia and the Ugandan Christian University. We will have a particular focus on ideation this time and Angela - an experienced designer and creator from Creaholic in Switzerland - will be coming to teach this part of the programme. This trip will also allow us to meet many of our partners and friends that we have only seen via Zoom over the past 2 years!

Over the past weeks we have been working with a specialised legal firm in Uganda to register the Agripreneurship Alliance as an official international NGO in Uganda. A lot of documents are required but the process is well under way, and we hope to open an Agripreneurship Alliance office in 2022.
