My name is Merab Acham, 25, a veterinary Graduate from Makerere University. I completed my course in 2015 after which I got an opportunity to go for a one year agricultural apprenticeship programme in Israel under Agrostudies.
Agrostudies is a programme at Makerere, Kyambogo, Busitema, Busoga, and Bishop Stuart universities to encourage the young graduates to consider agriculture as a profession.
They are placed as interns where they participate in the day-to-day activities of the farm. This is how I was assigned to Danziger “Dan” Flower Farm.
