Meet Kenneth

Meet Kenneth Ogwali. He's a 38-year-old tree farmer in small village just outside of Lira, Uganda.

In 2005 Canadian Physicians for Aid and Relief (CPAR) trained Kenneth on farming techniques and gave him a small crop of tree seedlings. Since then he's managed to get his tree farm off the ground, with several wood lots on the go and he and his wife Christine now own a store where they sell millet, maize, soya bean and sunflower.

He has seven staff who farm on his lots and he's built a new home on his property where he also grows cotton, papaya and other crops.

Wanting to give back, Kenneth dreams of building a school on one of his properties to train local farmers so that they can also experience success.
