Empowerment for the Poor-Uganda is thankful to everyone that has continued to provide a helping hand towards the support to children even during this dangerous time of COVID-19 pandemic. We are greatly humbled by your commitment; dedication and passion that has enabled us to continue putting food at the table before children and ensuring that even their households have what to eat During this period under review, we were able to mobilize, sensitize and trained 98 farmers who are caretakers of orphans in climate resilient agriculture practices with the major aim of increasing agriculture productivity and booster children’s nutrition. We distributed seed varieties which included, maize, beans, finger millet, kidney bean, potato and foxtail millet and other agricultural and tree biodiversity can contribute to improved nutrition, resilience, productivity and climate change adaptation. This has enhanced the resilience of farmers, in particular of communities and households most affected by climate change which were previously affected by drought, food insecurity and malnutrition. The project has also engaged in several climates change-oriented activities that enable farmer-researcher interaction which has successfully helped communities to use crop diversity to ensure their food security and that of their communities, to thrive in these challenging conditions and to make their farms resilient. The school gardens have also benefited from these endeavors. We are greatly thrilled by the unfalling and unwavering work of our Individual sponsors at GlobalGiving, who have generously continued to contribute wholeheartedly to our cause that reduce malnutrition to promote education of vulnerable children. Your financial support has done wonders because without your support we would not have moved the far we have reached. We are inspired by the successes and achievements we have registered during this period and we request for your continued support and wish to see many promising new sponsors to enable us support many children and families during and the aftermath of COVID-19 Lock done.
