EATBETA focuses on alleviating rural unemployment, food and water shortages in sub-Saharan Africa. We empower and equip rural farmers with practical skills through training and outreach programs.
Each summer since 2017, EATBETA has been mobilizing volunteers from the United States (farmers, college students, educators, business professionals, etc.) to participate in annual outreach programs to train rural farmers in Uganda. The training programs are designed to help rural farmers learn more profitable farming techniques for raising crops and livestock, to enable rural farmers to acquire practical and valuable 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.
