My profile

I started as a secondary school teacher before joining Busitema University for general agriculture where I graduated in 2014. I joined private sector to build up my skills and experience in January 2015 where I implemented the IFAD funded Vegetable Oil Development Project phase 2 (VODP 2) in Mukongoro Sub county, Kumi District. Due to my outstanding performance, I was promoted in 2017 to lead the VODP 2 at the District as a District Technical Supervisor VODP 2, Kumi District until it was officially closed on 31st December 2019.
However in the process of leading the project at District level, I also went back to Specialize in veterinary at Busitema University where I graduated on 3rd October 2019.
I also formed a youth development organisation called YESRUD in 2017 which has supported over 2,000 farmers and over 10,000 households in Kumi District in the field of agriculture. Currently I work as an Executive Director Youth Effort for Sustainable Rural Development (YESRUD) based in Kumi Town, Eastern Uganda.
