Uganda Service Learning Projects 2019

Iowa State University students work with students from Makerere University on one of eight bi-national team projects (agroforestry, beekeeping/youth entrepreneurship, hygiene and sanitation, irrigation, post-harvest loss reduction, poultry, school feeding, and soil improvement) as part of the Creating a School Garden: Service Learning in Uganda Program.  Projects are aimed at enhancing the school gardening program and addressing issues faced by the schools while allowing students to practice working cross culturally to solve problems.  After completing their projects students prepare posters to showcase the issue or problem in the school gardening program, what they did to address the issue, and what potential impacts may be.  These posters are presented to the Iowa State University and Makerere University communities during events in fall semester, and are used by the subsequent service learners to prepare for their bi-national team projects.
