Actress Uzo Aduba visits Heifer Farmers in Uganda
Upon entering the village of Nsange, Aduba was greeted with native music and dancing in celebration of Heifer’s most important traditions, a Passing on the Gift ceremony.
Emmy Award winning actress Uzo Aduba just returned from a Heifer International visit in Uganda where she got an in-depth look at Heifer’s projects with farmers.
“The visit to Uganda and my meeting with farmers was emotional, thought-provoking and inspirational," said Aduba. "The farmers I met are like all of us — they have families to care for, they have dreams of a better life and most important, they have the resolve to make change. The concept of ending global poverty isn’t new, and I’ve come to understand that there’s no easy solution. Using Heifer’s methods, farmers are able to be self sufficient and independent of aid, with their eyes toward making a living income so they are truly financially empowered."
