And Empowered Voices is proud to part of that development. On the front page of this weeks Organic News in Uganda is a photo from an organic farmer's market where Peninah from Empowered Voices is selling her produce to customers.
Through our local project manager, Julie Matovu, EV has been introduced to organic farming through the organisation NOGAMU (National Organic Agriculture Movement of Uganda). They are the leading organisation for organic farming and agriculture in Uganda and they have been giving several trainings for Empowered Voices. Some of our farmers are also going through a process of getting officially certified as organic.
