Summary

Women provide up to 90% of the rural poor's food and produce, WGEF is supporting women farmers by offering agro loans and training. Help us provide agricultural loans to 30 women in northern Uganda!

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Northern Uganda is a post conflict region, with a temperate climate. While the food agencies have been there for decades, there are shortages; for the region to successfully recover and for peace to continue, the people of the region must begin to grow their own food, feeding themselves, their families and their communities. What we know is that women produce up to 80% of food in developing countries, WGEF is supporting women and farming projects thru our agricultural loan program.

How will this project solve this problem?

The agricultural project will provide 30 women with agricultural loans, training and support, ensuring that our clients are able to successfully plant, grow and harvest their crops. Supporting women farmers is the way to create food security.

Potential Long Term Impact

By funding the WGEF agro program, 30 women will have the opporutnity to create small to medium scale agro projects. Women comprise the majority of Africa's farmers, playing a major role in farming, biodiversity and protecting nature.
