About Us

Through training and outreach programs, EATBETA is focused on tackling rural unemployment, food and water shortage problems in sub-Saharan Africa while empowering rural farmers with practical skills. Every summer, since 2017, EATBETA mobilizes volunteers from the United States (farmers, college students, educators, businesspersons, etc) to go and train rural farmers in Uganda. The training programs are particularly designed to help rural farmers learn better and profitable farming (crop and livestock) techniques, and also to enable rural farmers acquire practical and value-addition skills such as farm-harvest processing, welding, beekeeping, carpentry, sewing, weaving, pottery, bricklaying, and other complementary skills. In addition to providing training to rural farmers, EATBETA is involved in facilitating the construction of hand-dug water wells in rural communities. Most rural communities in sub-Saharan Africa have a serious shortage of clean water; thus, our goal is to construct hand-dug water wells, particularly, in the villages where EATBETA carries out training and outreach programs.
