Uganda

Update 2009

The fruitgrowing project of the Katekwan Farming Group seems to do well. We hope to be able to give more details in our coming newsletter of mid 2010.

Background

In Uganda Mesics cooperates since 2000 with the Katekwan Farming Group in the Kumi District under chairperson Mrs Gertrude Akellem for the realisation of tilapia ponds. This project is the result of a long standing cooperation with Father Jan Heine and has been financed by the Emmaus Foundation in Bilthoven, Holland.

Mesics provides administrative support on the request of the Emmaus Foundation. Since 2000 five ponds have been built with a total surface of aprox 300m². The total investment has been aprox € 10.000,-, own contribution aprox € 2.000,-.
