TUGUME CLEVER Makerere U , Uganda
Farmers in Africa live below the poverty line. Farmers in Africa earn less than what an average American farmer earned 100 years ago. This impoverished setting has in away demotivated them from producing food on a large scale. Team UgaWorks finds this as the core-problem and would want to use the opportunity to end global hunger and together with the UN and the whole world tackle the sustainable Developmental Goal 2.
Team Ugaworks is made up of passionate and young Uganda entrepreneurs who have been concerned with the problem of global hunger ever since we met. It breaks our hearts to find that Africa with the vast fertile land and resources, are the most hungry. It has always been a major outcry to find ways to tackle global hunger and we find the TFF challenge as a door to answering our prayers. Together with Maureen Basemera (Ugandan) a Business Administration student in Ashesi Ghana.
