Uganda Sends 200 Agricultural Students to Israel – Zurah Nakabugo (Observer-Uganda)
Ugandan President Museveni saw off some 200 students on a one-year program to acquire agricultural skills in Israel.
Merab Acham, a veterinary medicine student from Makerere University, said: “We have been always waiting for rain to do farming, but Israel is a desert and it’s one of the best countries in agricultural production. So, we believe the skills we shall acquire will help in annual production and reduce the problems of food scarcity in the country.”
At least 1,100 students from 17 countries worldwide are attaining modern agricultural skills in Israel.
