- Evidence of empowering communities through sustainable farm-based micro-enterprises, charity and advisory services on food and nutrition security using the experience from refugee communities
- Strengthening university capacities for entrepreneurial training through university administrators and program leaders sharing experiences of implementing a unique program at Gulu University and Egerton University
