Charles Batte: The boy who thought big
Charles Batte had a visionary idea ten years ago, when he was 19. He decided to plant trees in the rural community where his family held a piece of land. Born in Kampala, the capital of Uganda, Batte went frequently to the village of Katiiti, 37 kilometers west, to help plant food for his subsistence-farming family of 15. He has thirteen brothers, five of them adopted by his parents.
