*Update, After talking to many colleagues at the International Permaculture Convergence we have moved this to 1 – 14 May 2016 to allow more time to prepare and promote the course.
We are very keen to hear from anyone interested in this course, we see a great potential to contribute to grass-roots development in Eastern Uganda while creating a fantastic learning environment for all concerned.
After a very successful fact finding mission to Eastern Uganda in 2014 we are keen to put together a PDC to run there, one that is designed for both local Ugandans as well as international participants.
The course might serve as a fantastic general introduction to working in East Africa, whilst meeting all sorts of people and projects with experience in crop diversification, reafforestation, income development, and much more.
This course is developed in close association with Dolen Ffermo a Wales/ Uganda farmers link. This charity was launched by colleagues of ours who are also local residents in Mid Wales, over 20 years ago.. Over that time a considerable network of project links has been developed.
- Price for International Participants: £450 + return flight (c£350)
- Price for East African participants: US$120.00
- Ideal for individuals wanting to gain direct experience of project work in an Africa context and to work with an experienced team from the region
The first day of this course is 1 May 2016. We will meet in Jinja a few das earlier before travelling to Kamuli where we will be based for the duration of the course.
