We are thrilled to announce Jacqueline J. Acaa, better known to us as Jackie, is the second recipient of our Field of Hope Scholarship. Jackie has been working with Field of Hope since 2015, when she met our co-founder Mike Hafner. “We become friends at first sight,” Jackie said, when Mike told her about FOH and our efforts to support women through agricultural training. FOH asked Jackie to help us with our women’s group trainings, and she has been an integral part of our success.
Jackie has build a career toward, “strengthening the capacity of farmers to improve food security, nutrition and income,” she said. She has done so after receiving her previous degrees: a BSc. in Agriculture, and a post graduate diploma in project planning and management. Currently, she is working on attaining her MSc. Applied Human Nutrition from Makerere University.
Field of Hope has awarded her a scholarship to help aid in gaining her Master’s degree in Applied Human Nutrition.
