ARU in partnership with Social Initiative, a-Connect and THEATA organized a Herbal Remedies Validation Workshop. The workshop was opened by the University Secretary –Ms. Jacqueline Akello on behalf of the Vice Chancellor who highlighted the purpose as to enable different wisdom specialists and trained doctors specializing in herbal medicines and the University get into contact, share knowledge and experiences, devise means and develop proper understanding on different kinds of medicines.
The Traditional Wisdom Specialists and other Herbal Medicine practitioners are gifted naturally and this can be harnessed to help ARU get away forward for the development of the Arboretum, add value to these medicines and create a conducive environment for learning for the students and community members.
The workshop attracted participants from the community and other organisations that have specialized in herbal medicine.
The participants were able to share ideas, identify the local names in different languages and the English names of the medicines, they made new discoveries and the trend is hoped to continue as more learning workshops shall be held at different intervals. This will help ARU in her attempt to build a better Arboretum and do value addition on different medicines.
