Summary

The Uganda Community Organic Farm, known simply as the "Uganda Community Farm", is a nonprofit agribusiness initiative that aims to equip rural farmers with hands-on skills on organic horticulture systems capable of emancipating their livelihoods above the poverty line - in a Self Sufficient manner. Our goal is to set a precedent for Africa's Rural Poor to take charge on their own exit from Extreme Poverty. Visit: http://www.ugandafarm.org/

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

In retrospect, interventions aimed at lifting rural communities out of extreme poverty (e.g. through the adoption of clean energy solutions, sustainable land use practices, income generating activities etc) tend to render themselves to a 'short-lived and very unsustainable impact' when the target poor communities do not take a central position in practicing and/or sustaining the acquired skills/innovation on their own.

How will this project solve this problem?

Besides creating Financial Self Sufficiency in scaling our nonprofit's ongoing conservation work (on community forestry, alternative household energy and organic gardening) in Uganda's heavily deforested countryside, the farm shall contemporarily bring together and equip our target smallholder farmers to act for themselves out of extreme poverty (in a Self Help fashion), giving them the training and skills to grow and market their own food through sustainable and regenerative practices.

Potential Long Term Impact

The Uganda Community shall position itself both as a practical organic farming learning center for rural smallholder farmers and a Collective Market for the participating farmers' horticultural and/or agrarian produce. Collective marketing itself will be the poor farmers' only shot at accessing a 'high value agriculture market share' they couldn't access before--such as through the supply of quality, fresh green vegetables to large international hotels.
