The initiative, which is being rolled out by Ugandan priest Emmanuel Maria Vura, known locally as ‘Father Natalino’,  provides young people in Uganda with a source of income and food, according to Vura. It is also expected to rehabilitate them by teaching them new skills.

The project is located in northern Uganda’s Moyo district, centring on a cooperative farm and associated rabbitry.

New Holland said the tractor, which was presented to Father Natalino by the company’s agriculture brand president Carlo Lambro, will help the farm to operate more efficiently.

One of a range of tractors traditionally popular with arable and livestock farmers, the TD5.95 will enable the farmers to grow higher quality forage for rabbit food on-site, allowing them to avoid the need to purchase costly commercial rabbit feed.

The added help which the tractor will provide could also allow the centre to boost productivity to the levels required to begin selling the surplus to markets and supermarkets, the firm said.
