Summary

The Karamojong tribe we are working with in rural Uganda are the poorest of the poor. They struggle with lack of water, poor health, hunger, and lack of education. They are learning to become farmers. They have good tillable land on which to grow their crops. It is a huge backbreaking task when the only tools they have are simple hoes. They have a tractor and plow, they need other equipment. The people will be able to raise more food for themselves and have excess to sell.

Challenge

There are 15,000 Karamojong living in the villages we are working with. They are learning to become farmers and keeping fewer cattle in order to live in peace and move away from the generations of cattle rustling and killing. But they have only the basic hand tools to work the hundreds of acres they have. They need better equipment to be able to more effectively plant their crops before the rain comes.

Solution

This project will allow the tribe to better prepare the soil and plant their crops more quickly when they know the rains are coming. It will also help them to harvest their crops more quickly and get them to market in a more timely fashion.

Long-Term Impact

This project will help in a huge way with food security for all of the tribe. It will also have the potential to give they excess crops to sell to improve their standard of living.
