Challenge

Poverty and environmental degradation is a real challenge in Nabbale sub county in Mukono district. These problems have severally affected women and children in these communities, women most of them widows do not have money to buy food for their families where are extended families in nature and can not take their children to school. With this poverty, women will grow fruits which they will sell to raise money that can be used to pay for school fees and buy food for their families.

Solution

When women grow fruits, they will be in position to sell them to get money which they will use to pay for school dues, buy food for families and be in position to meet other essential needs. Most fruits grow as trees and these will help to improve on the environment to prevent effects of deforestation in the community.

Long-Term Impact

Directly, the project aims to benefit close to 200 women in 200 families, these will be provided with 100 - 1000 fruit seedling depending on the size of land these women own. Indirectly the project will benefit 1000 beneficiaries.
