On Arts Wednesday 17 April 2019, Sylvia’s guests were Brody Smith and Bri Kerr, co-directors of the Bugisu Project. This amazing start up by a group of young people imports coffee from Uganda, lends it to customers and use the returned ¬†grounds in compost and manufacture of a surprising array of goods. Profits are then sent back to Uganda, supporting a charity there which looks to redress the gender imbalance in rural communities. It’s a story and a half and heartening to hear such passionate and idealistic young people.
