WHAT WE DO
We promote the production of chia seeds for the domestic and export market. The Ugandan chia stands out from that grown in South America for its 63% Omega 3 content as opposed to 53% Omega 3 for American chia.
We aim to encourage chia seeds farmers to embrace beekeeping not only as an alternative income but due to the critical observation and acknowledgment of the link between bees looking for pollen from chia and chia plants requiring pollination.
We do entrepreneurship education to help make future dreams come true for Uganda’s secondary school students by teaching them financial literacy skills needed to be successful in life as a way of poverty eradication.
