How a farming initiative led by refugees in Uganda creates a positive impact on society by helping educate children at one of the oldest refugee camps in the country.
By Abul Ajak
Abul Ajak’s film Planting Seeds of Hope: The Story of Ishimwe Jonah follows a resident of Nakivale refugee camp, one of the oldest such camps in Uganda, whose refugee-led farming initiative funds an educational facility there.
Using income generated by his farm, Jonah supports the refugee community to exchange knowledge in a grassroots structure of education, foregrounding refugee voices in the labour of agriculture.
