UWABUKA is a farmers’ co-operative group in Kyerwa, rural Kagera Region. Kevin Curley visited this group in January 2018 and found them ‘to be a hard-working group of farmers’. He was impressed they had already started several income generating activities without waiting for handouts. The community is poor and has no milling machine in the village.

It was decided that TDT should fund a new grinding mill, and roofing materials for the machine shed. UWABUKA has already purchased the machine, had it delivered and has now started to build the house.
