Uganda government agricultural project, Abi Zonal Agricultural Research and Development Institute (Abi ZARDI,) is introducing a scientific and a “better way” of gardening to both refugees and locals living in the Northern region of the country. Custodians of the scientific project anticipate high crop yields to boost food security in every family, in the near future. Furthermore, the project is a catalyst for a smooth integration between the two communities (both refugees and hosts) that live alongside one another, Abi ZARDI argue. Dibaba John has more.
