    My name is Dorothy, a resident of Kampala in Uganda,i started my project on agro forestry last year in my home district of Lamwo in northern Uganda.I am very much interested in increasing on agriculture and environmental conservation.I am a graduate of Nkumba university with a first class degree in environmental science.
    I have created employment to the youths around the region by involving them in field activities such as planting, ploughing, and weeding and tree talks.
    However, i am stuck due to lack of funds to manage my project yet i want it to be a spring board to ensuring increased production,economic development and environmental conservation.
