AgriTechTalk International U.K. provided a series of farm numeracy lessons in Kitgum, Acholi, Uganda, based on a fictional extension agent called “Uno How.” Dialogue between Uno How and two farmers, depicted through a series of pictures, provided lessons in functional numeracy. The series included multiple modules, ranging from counting to measurement of fields and determining rates of application of seeds, fertilizers, and sprays. These modules were tested and used in a cascading training curriculum in Northern Uganda delivered through voluntary membership of two tiers of self-help Uno How Clubs.
