Description

If school children in Uganda have taken to a super-nutritious traditional fermented millet drink called bushera and if an India-inspired peanut bar is a popular item in Zambian supermarkets, a training initiative in partnership with the India-Africa Forum Summit deserves mention. The initiative over the past three years fostered nutripreneurs like Mr Adams Sapeho, a food scientist turned businessman and Ms Chiumphe Sarah Lungu who runs a small-scale enterprise.
