Climate-resilient banana farmers in Uganda
Stanley Rwabukye is a man dedicated to his land. His passion for farming is well reflected in the way he manages his banana plantation and tends to the few herds of cattle he owns. Like most Ugandan farmers, Rwabukye wakes up at the crack of dawn and heads to his fields where he spends the better part of his day digging, weeding and pruning. Despite his 76 years of age, he is still full of youthful vigour.
“I wake up every day at 4:00 A.M to work on my garden. This is what I am good at. Bananas are a staple crop in this area. It is our food, but we also sell it to earn some income,” Rwabukye said.
