400 young people attend the institute; 50 percent are young men and 50 percent young women. The school has 103 acres of land as direct school grounds and a further 690 acres in Mayanja, which are used for livestock breeding and forestry projects.
The agricultural students also work together with the local population in outreach programmes and thus pass on their know-how to the rural population.
