The fund for the farming project was received in January, 2015 from an organization named Emerge Poverty Free. The farm utilizes 220 acres of land and is currently growing vegetables, fruit, beans, groundnuts and grain. There are also animals like chicken, cows, pigs and goats.

'I have been able to gain some independence; the three youngest of my grandchildren are now attending a boarding school at Namisambya and as old as I look, I always pay their school fees on time with little trouble.
