I am happy to note that they are following H E Kaguta Museveni directives and all workers are housed at a school near the factory as the factory accommodation is completed. This is to ensure that there is no mingling of the communities with their families as the country faces this COVID-19 outbreak.

Aminah’s project is intended to empower the people of Acholi sub region and make them sustainable. Her team will train the people to grow sugarcane, which is important for our country’s economy.
