Explain your idea in details:

Kyajagali is located near the Walusi hills in Luwero district where the Kabaka of Buganda, the biggest Kingdom in Uganda, goes for cultural hunting. The community makes traditional crafts, has very old structures (some over 100 years old) that represent the traditional building architecture in the region and practices several indigenous traditions including games. Nonetheless, subsistence farming their only source of livelihood. We want to exploit the villages cultural heritage and strategic location to turn it into a tourist destination. We intend to establish a cultural tourism center in the village, where locals can make and exhibit their crafts, tell folk stories, play traditional games with the visitors, among other local experiences. The center will have a camping site, and traditionally designed eco-lodges, exhibition hall, and kitchen. In addition, we will establish two community vegetable greenhouses at the cultural center to feed our visitors but also boost the local market and empower subsistence farmers. 7.5 tons of mixed high-volume vegetable crops can be expected from each of the 750m2 greenhouses and gross revenue of about 7000 dollars annually. Part of the proceeds will also help support children education. The two greenhouses will be entirely staffed by local women (about 40) in cooperatives established in surrounding villages. We will also train 100 youths to become principal trainers to local farmers in sustainable farming practices in their respective villages.

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

Tourism and travel in Uganda remain a major sector, contributing 7.3% of its GDP, 17.9% of total exports and 6.3% of total employment, in 2017. The numbers are expected to rise with increased investment. However, until now, attractions in Uganda have been specialized, emphasizing on high-income luxury trips to watch wildlife and nature, and adventures such as to the source of the Nile due to the limited choice for the tourists, lack of diverse, unique and authentic cultural products, and poor infrastructure. This leads to relatively-low length of stay and spends by tourists. Cultural tourism can be a sustainable way of providing socio-economic benefits to rural areas and our target is to transform the ruins and stories in post-war areas into hope and a source of livelihood. To track progress, we will record the number of visitors coming to the village every month. We expect a 100% rise in visitor numbers after one year. Greenhouses can be used to support small-scale farmers secure sustainable livelihoods through increasing access to economic opportunities in the agricultural value chains and increasing resilience to natural disasters related to climate change. They can be used to produce food all year through regardless of the seasons. There is also enough evidence to show that profits from well-managed greenhouses are enormous. We will record the amount of output from the greenhouses and the number of participants. We expect a 50% increase in vegetable output from the village after five months from commencement. We also expect areas such as with rocky soils that are unfavourable for farming and had been abandoned by locals, to be utilized after this project. Greenhouses can become a good option. We will carry out surveys during community meetings to ascertain the number of beneficiaries and assess the impact of the project.

Plans for implementation and sustainability

The project is designed to be self-sustaining. We expect to obtain profits from selling products in the greenhouses but also from fees for camping or buying crafts. The primary target for the cultural produce will be visitors at the tourism site. These will be allowed to buy the vegetables and prepare their own meals (if they like). Thus, proceeds from one can support the other and will help support the implementation and expansion of the project. We have built a team consisting of locals including architects and farmers, their leadership (local council) and tour guides. We are attracting more members from the community. Furthermore, we are first concentrating on Kyajagali, in a local setting but expect this to spread to nearby villages and other post-war zones in the country. On the implementation of the project, we intend to write a proposal to the central government for support and expansion, and the establishment of similar programs in the country. This project will act as evidence. Since agriculture and tourism are at the top of the Uganda agenda to alleviate poverty, we envisage that the success of this project will attract the central government of Uganda. Moreover, post-war effects are of global concern and hence we expect NGO,s and other international donors to come on board once this is successful.

Your profile

I am a Ugandan, currently living in Germany. I have a bachelor of science degree in Conservation Biology from Makerere University Uganda and a masters in Biodiversity and Collection Management from Technische University Dresden Germany. I am currently pursuing a Ph.D. in which I will assess the relevance of Africa's museums to society. I took on biodiversity research because I love working with the 'real world' and influencing 'real people', call it sustainable development. 30 years after relentless wars in Uganda, many people, especially in rural areas, still live in absolute misery with no access to, medical services, education, proper diet, water, etc. Coming from such a country, I can say that I have beaten the odds. This is what motivates me to be part of the global initiatives for change. My experience traveling, studying and working in several countries, opened my eyes to realize that all communities have gold that just needs to be mined. Unfortunately, many projects intending to improve livelihoods target urban centers, are not sustainable or do not directly impact on the intended beneficiaries. I believe that if projects can directly involve local communities, be all inclusive and build resilient structures, many sustainable challenges can be overcome.

Does kyajagali already have a reputation for tourism or are you hoping to turn it into a tourist destination? If it is the latter, how do you intend to showcase the location to the international community? You'll need partnership with local government and other stake holders to execute this grand stand, identify these stake holders and improve the idea. You have a great idea keep it up.

The idea sounds great . It is commendable because it aims at making use of what the local community is already familiar with. Involving women and youth in the implementation is great because the two groups form a large pecentage of the African population Uganda included.

Bwerere Jacob

May 16, 2019 16:08

Its a very brilliant idea and if implemented, I believe will have great success to the improvement of the livelihoods of the people in Kyajagali village.
Cultural tourism is a venture yet to be fully exploited on Uganda especially for minority tribes and post war affected areas. There is a lot that can be exploited for the benefit of the people other than lamenting for example as stated by the writer that craft making which is symbolic of heritage and original creativity, indeginous knowledge on technologies of security, energy and medicines etc.

Very interesting, so fulfilling!!!
It will see to sustainability in the region.
Can\\\'t wait to be a part of this whole project...it will definitely improve on the farmers product output, create jobs and bring in income for the locals hence enhancing personal and regional growth. Thank you for the opportunity presented. I can\\\'t wait!!!!!

We expect growth socially economically through tourism in this area after this project. The fact the area is agriculture based this idea shall bear fruit also to the locals

May 15, 2019 13:29

Thanks Lucia. I am working with the villagers especially the women and the youth! We also want to make the area a tourism hub! In this way, we can restore hope and provide alternative livelihood! These are my major targets. Thanks again! Your vote counts too :)

Donam

May 15, 2019 13:14

Great initiative!! I agree cultural tourism in Uganda has not been exploited. And then that tint of greenhouses makes it super! Selfless people still exist! Wish you success!

May 15, 2019 13:12

This is a great idea, farming is a very important tool for development. Using greenhouse methods to grow vegetables and improve the lives of the poor it is very effective because vegetables are needed on daily basis hence its Daily sales are very high.
It will also be very effective if you engage the villagers to take part in this farming system so that it reaches many people and improve the lives of many in short period.i believe that this will also create jobs and empower women at large
