A number of development partners are participating in projects in skilling the youth to actively engage in agricultural initiatives as business enterprise in order to better their standard of living.
One such initiative is by Association of Volunteers in International Service (AVSI) where they are skilling the youth in agricultural product management in Central, Eastern and Western Uganda.
