The negative perception of agricultural employment by young people in Uganda results in untapped employment opportunities within the agricultural value chain, and contributes to the larger decline of the agricultural sector. Edward is working to reshape the negative attitude of young people towards agriculture by integrating an experiential learning model into the education system that exposes students to different facets of the agricultural value chain. He is transforming the perception of agriculture, and helping young people to appreciate the sector as a mainstream career option.
