Proud farmer’s proposal to be fully funded by Bryan White Foundation this week
Proud Farmer and socialite, Bettina Praising, has today been welcomed to Bryan White foundation’s podium to present her budget for her farmers in Zirobwe. Bryan White through his foundation has pledged total support to her projects and those of her fellow farmers.
As a commitment to support her, the foundation team will on Thursday this week visit her farms in Zirobwe, Gayaza Kyadondo in a fact finding mission. The foundation will then meet a team of farmers mobilized by Bettina to receive their farming tools. The foundation team will also go with the tools she requested for amounting to UGX 15m.
“I wanted to do something different after leaving the media. I have passion for farming. I wanted to change the women and youths. I started campaign through Facebook with hash tag #ProudFarmer. I have been preaching about farmers about farming been giving my local farmers budget to help them. I have been preaching about farming and my aim is to uplift the women and youths,” Bettina said.
Bryan White said the foundation will appoint Bettina Tumuhaise as an ambassador to promote farming and reach out to different farmers to promote farming. “Every person that comes out with such an idea, we don’t hesitate to support. We are here to inspire the youth from poverty,” he said.
The activist again called on Ugandans to stop hating each other and love their nation if they are to progress.
Meanwhile Bryan White accused The Kampala Sun Tabloid of trying to bring his activities down. “We are working for the nation, we don’t stop you from publishing but you are going beyond. You take us like fools and yet we are working for the nation. Publish messages that will help the country, inspire the youths, we talk about how to fight HIV and poverty but you don’t talk about it. You will not scare me from my country, we are here forever and we shall fight on till we get to our levels. I invited these guys to help me spread the message but it has become a trouble for them. They have families and kids to work for so let them be,” Bryan White said.
