OWC interventions for stabilizing economic transformation of Uganda

Operation Wealth Creation {OWC} encourages and boosts farmers to concentrate on growing perennial crops like Coffee, fruits, tea among other cash crops, construction of markets, rehabilitation and construction of abattoirs.
Operation wealth creation procures and distributes inputs like Robusta coffee seedlings, diary heifers, hybrid goats, piglets, and farm tractors; pasture feed seedlings, fertilizers, chicks and rabbits, irrigation equipments and components among others.

This is being done to groom the youths to involve themselves in agriculture, the backbone of the country’s economy. Operation wealthy creation is yet to start model farms on such institutions. Students are introduced to the slogan “Hands to the ground, not to the mouth”.
