Challenge

There are currently more than 120,000 refugees living in Nakivale refugee settlement according to the UNHCR. Even though the World Food Program and Government of Uganda provides food and cash rations, many of these refugees are at risk of starvation and poor nutrition, as they are not guaranteed ongoing food security and incomes. Alongside this, the environment around the refugee settlement is being degraded. This project will impact over 1,000 protracted refugees residing in Nakivale settlement

Solution

YICEUganda provides regenerative and permaculture training to refugee women. 200 women refugees will be trained in practical organic vegetable farming, good child nutrition, natural climate change mitigation and marketing skills. Each of the trained women will set up permaculture vegetable gardens that shall produce sufficient food for their household, as well as surplus produce to sell. The trained women will be tasked to each recruit two households so as to scale the project activities.

Long-Term Impact

The project will empower 200 women with practical permaculture and nutrition knowledge and skills allowing them to attain sustainable food and income for their households with in the refugee settlement. By using regenerative design techniques like Permaculture, the trainees will be able to regenerate the degraded ecology of their surrounding landscape, creating abundant spaces which support both the livelihoods of people, as well as the thriving of plant and animal life.
