WE INVEST IN PEOPLES KNOWLEDGE

TEACH

Most Ugandans in rural areas are nearly uneducated. This is the way in our trainings we focus on:

- the basics of economics

- the fundamentals of planning

- finding and raising personal strenghts 

These powerboost lessons give people the opportunity to take responsibility over their own lives.

GROW

By teaching young coffeefarmers or unemployed people the skills of growing mushrooms, we provide them with a unique skill in this area.

 

This will raise their chances creating a small scale business in mushrooms

We teach:

- basics of mushrooms

- basics of hygiene

- growing method and planning

- multiplying spores

- how to deal with failures

EARN

Alone you travel fast, together we reach further.

We don't need to train people how to trade. Most of them have this skill

 

But by building organisations, working together, investing their earings, they can make more money.

EAT

Mushrooms contain a lot of minerals and nutrients people need. So besides maize, casave, bananas and potatos which is been eaten by a lot of people most of the time, mushrooms fullfill a highly enrichening additive to their diet.
