Bishop Onesimus also urged church leaders and Christians to practice strategic usage of the gift of land, by engaging in coffee farming so they can raise their incomes and improve their standards of living. He emphasized that according to research, coffee farming has proven to be the most reliable cash crop that can bring in money without fail.

He requested people to save with the North Kigezi Diocese SACCO, whereby he demonstrated this by opening bank accounts and depositing some savings for at least one child in each parish he has visited. Many people responded by opening accounts with the North Kigezi Diocese SACCO.

To God be the glory.
