AGRICULTURE, MINING AND FISHING PROGRAM
Agriculture is a major source of food crop in Uganda. It is our aim as a foundation through Agriculture to continuously provide for our children with food. We have not yet achieved this yet as we planned to but looking forward to seeing it come to pass. There are little agricultural activities in the park due to the nature of the landscape and soil type, also animals come and eat the little crops they manage to cultivate.
We look forward to introduce better farming methods, fertilizers and better facing style to help in the cultivation of food crops like maize, sweet potatoes, yams, matooke (green banana), beans, cabbage, greens, groundnuts etc. This will help us attain a balanced diet within our children.
Salt mining is also done in the park but the community earns little out of which is not enough for daily use and also to educate their children thus taking children with them to work and skip school.
Fishing. Good and safe fishing methods are encouraged to prevent deaths on the Lake. Weather checking methods are encouraged to prevent the bad weather fishing and accidents from animals like Crocodiles, hippopotamus.
Lawrence Young Foundation with your support is trying to eradicate child labour and encourage child education in the Park Communities.
