Her husband, Mr Mayanja Leonard trains farmers in cheap ways of water harvesting using underground tanks.
The project discovered that the couple was already harvesting water from surface run-off and decided to contract them to construct more tanks in Bukulula, Kabonera, Taga ,Kitenga, Kikunyu. Many farmers are now using the dams to irrigate coffee, home use and for livestock. The couple has so far trained over 30 groups some with a membership of over 35 farmers in water harvesting for coffee production, organic vegetable production and marketing.
