Challenge

In Ntoroko District, 90% of households make a living as subsistence farmers on degraded land and hunger and malnutrition are chronic issues. Over 50% of children 5-59 months old are stunted and 20% are wasted. Women are the main farmers of food but need support to improve crop diversity and productivity. Other women lack access to land but can garden collectively. Better nutrition is essential for improving the health status of children and school performance.

Solution

Establishing vegetable growing in the kitchen gardens is a gateway to food secure and climate resilient families in Ntoroko district. Kitchen gardens are low-cost and effective way to increase vegetable and fruit consumption and empower women to generate and spend income on family needs. These Care groups model the slow but equitable changes in family organization RAFUG is currently seeking before the United Nations Human Rights Council.

Long-Term Impact

This project will improve the dietary diversity, nutrition, health and welfare of 1,000 families in Ntoroko District. It will provide a partnership model (Women Care group) of effective support for home and community gardens for replication and scaling-up throughout Uganda. Women managed kitchen gardens to empower women to feed their families, earn income, reduce domestic tension.
