USP students are off on rural home stays this week. Some are in Serere, just north of Lake Kyoga, while others are in Kapchorwa, on the foothills of Mt. Elgon. This week, their only task is to participate in the lives of their host families, much of which revolves around agriculture. Depending on the season and the weather, USP students help their families plant, weed, harvest and process a wide variety of crops including maize, matooke, groundnuts, cassava, sweet potatoes, and coffee.
