About Eddie

Although Eddie was abused working in farms as a child, he took a stand and established Project DISC (Developing Innovations in Schools and Community Cultivation). This project seeks to reform the negative stereotypes that youth associate with small-scale farming, such as it being a form of punishment and a degrading form of work. Eddie's model provides young people in primary and secondary schools with simple agriculture skills to help them grow food, earn a living and prepare for the future. Today 63 schools which include over 1,200 school children across Uganda have implemented Eddie's successful model.
