A Gift for A King
A young Ugandan girl named Gift Namuwaya, 12 years old, learned how to make soymilk and other soy products last year during FARM STEW training. Together with her mother, who joined a FARM STEW Savings club that the community members call “Miracle Center,” they started a soy enterprise. The family invested in soybeans, a wooden mortar and some pans for preparing the milk.
Now Gift sells a large (half a liter) cup for 1000 Ugandan Shillings (about 30 cents). There is so much interest in her soy products that she was invited by the King of the Busoga (Eastern Uganda) Region to train him. Local television stations picked up the story and have interviewed Gift on television!
She is thrilled to “share the recipe,” as she freely received the knowledge, she is now freely giving it away. Gifts to www.farmstew.org have made it possible for Gift to reach an African king and all those that watch her television interview!
