By Kei Emmanuel Duku


A two-day workshop in Mere Trading Centre, Kajo-Keji County aimed at boosting farmers’ skills in post-harvesting and saving has concluded on Tuesday.

The workshop aimed to provide 40 participants, 70% of whom were women, with skills in post-harvest handling and savings and loan management.

The training, which took place on May 27th and 28th, attracted farmers from all five Payams in Kajo-Keji County.

CEPO’s goal was to equip farmers with the necessary knowledge and tools to effectively manage their harvests and income.

The participants learned record-keeping techniques to monitor their agricultural output and sales.

Following the workshop, farming groups received essential supplies such as ox ploughs, agricultural seedlings, savings boxes, passbooks for members, and stationery.

CEPO’s project, launched in 2021, targets the Northern Districts of Uganda and Kajo-Keji County, aiming to strengthen community resilience during conflict situations with a focus on gender sensitivity.

The project is implemented in collaboration with the Austrian Centre for Peace and funded by the Austrian Development Agency.
