This project will build a demonstration farm and a resource centre in Masaka, Uganda.
This will facilitate skills building and information sharing to improve on farming methods among rural farmers.
Rural livelihood remains very poor. More than 6000 of the rural farmers in Masaka survive on less than USD1 a day. This because they practice poor farming methods, limited access to basic farming tools, lack access to social and economic information.
Uganda's economy widely depends on the agriculture. Over 85% of the estimated 22 Million Uganda’s total populations live in the rural areas. Most of the agricultural activities take place in the rural areas.
This project will train rural farmers
Training and skills sharing to sensitize/ enlighten the rural farmers (youth, women and men) about changing their mind set as regards improved farming methods to ensure sustainable rural livelihoods while ensuring environmental integrity.
We will train 3000 youth, 5000 women & 2000 men, allowing them to combat rural poverty. This will better access to basic needs like: health facilities, food, education and shelter for their families to restore family pride. Skills building is key.
