From November 21 to December 1 I will be on an educational study mission visiting co-operatives in Uganda with the Canadian Co-operative Association.
In Africa, I will learn how farmers in Northern Uganda are improving their livelihoods through an innovative and integrated program that brings together production, marketing, and financial services co-operatives.I will be contributing to the team’s blog, The View from Here, to learn about how co-operatives are alleviating poverty and building a better world.
Follow us on our exciting journey of discovery.
This is my second mission to a developing nation where CCA is helping to build pathways out of poverty. The first was to Nicaragua in 2010 and it was a life-changing experience.
