Edible Park efforts in Uganda
The Phoenix Voyage Tanzania Hamlet operations manager, Christopher Simwinga, introduced his friend and active global changemaker, Mathius Lukwago, to us in December. We are thrilled to have Mathius join the worldwide effort to eliminate poverty and hunger.
The first Hamlet is in Luwero on 8 acres of land and already has a group of active volunteers!
