Uganda Agricultural Project
Organic Farming in Uganda
Most of the 1.4 billion people living on less than £1 a day live in rural areas and depend largely on agriculture for their livelihoods.
These small-holder farming households farm on small plots of land, growing crops primarily to feed themselves and to sell any surplus in local markets. Yet they provide a staggering 80% of the food consumed in much of the developing world.
Helping these farmers to grow more is a key way to fight hunger and helping them to earn more from selling their produce is a key way to fight poverty. In fact, a 10% increase in farm yields has been shown to lead to a 7% reduction in poverty in Africa and a 5% reduction in poverty in Asia.
CELEDI Community Empowerment
Through CELEDI, our Community Enterprise partner in Uganda, we aim to provide much needed seeds, tools and support to local families which will enable them to better understand the farming process and maximise the harvesting potential.
We Need Your Help
Our goal is to establish a self-sufficient farming community.
The vegetable seeds we provide will allow the farmers not only to harvest enough for their families to live a comfortable life without worrying where the next meal is coming from but also to trade the surplus and use the income to send the children to school and improve their livelihoods.
We do however need your help. Training, tools and continuous support cost money. Any donation would be very kindly appreciated by the tens of families we’re helping.
