Meet our loved team members in the US and Uganda.
Tugume Joseph Apuuli "Buka""
Born and raised in Kyarusozi, Buka is serving his community by directing day-to-day operations of LUMM. Buka has been with LUMM since 2017. In addition to his hard work as part of our team, he is also completing his bachelor's degree in Public Administration and Management. Outside of work, Buka enjoys playing football and making friends. His favorite football player is Ronaldinho, but his favorite team is Chelsea.
Joseph was born and raised in Kyarusozi. He even attended Kyarusozi Primary, where we do much of our work. Joseph joined the LUMM team in spring 2020 and since then, our farm has grown tremendously, adding the poultry, piggery, and rabbit projects and annual crops like pineapples. Joseph is currently attending university to earn his bachelor’s in Agribusiness. Fun fact: Joseph likes watching adventure films, and his favorite right now is “Handsome Siblings.”
Kaahwa Peter Akiiki
Peter is from a subcounty of Kyembogo, a few miles away from Kyarusozi. Peter was sponsored by LUMM to complete his secondary education, and now he has returned as the interim secretary before he returns to school in the fall. He is hoping to continue his education in upper high school. Peter enjoys watching football outside of work and spending time with friends, new and old.
