Ten households have planted their crops in Bugodi and Bukaleba villages. If they get a good yield outof the crops, they will sell some and also keep the surplus for food.
Our annual report is in the link shared
It was time for harvesting and preparing land.The last season was not very good for some of thefamilies that planted their crops,some made losses and others were able to harvest in plenty.
There are some families that were able to harvest and they got food and sold the surplus. For example one of the women mentioned that she was able to get 5 bags of maize retained 2 for food and sold the balance inorder to get money topay school fees for her children.
Other women didn't get much but atleast they were able to harvest for food.
They have prepared their gardens for this new season hoping it will be a good one.
Though Covid period has affected us, we are greatful that Community Concerns Uganda Initiative has continued supporting us. We have stated harvesting and out of the harvest we expect to eat some of the food and sell the surplus.
For me, I used not to be able to afford to buy food most of the time but I’m glad I no longer have to buy food, at least I can get it from the garden that community Concerns Uganda rented for me. Because I was saving some money, I will be able to retain the piece of land by paying the owner more money.” (Onne of the beneficiaries of the project)
They are harvesting maize,beans and soya.
I hope to sell the surplus of my maize sothat i can be able to pay school fees for my grandchildren.
This season is always a good one here in Uganda and people plant with excitement expecting to harvest bountifully at the end. The rains came in April and for one month there was a lot of rain and after that month the rains started reducing and sunshine was more. One of the farmers in Bugodi village that is being supported by this project is still going despite the weather.
“This project enabled me get money to be able to hire land for farming. I have been able to grow maize, ground nuts and cassava for food and also commercial purposes. I started with half an acre but currently I have an acre of land. Thank you Community Concerns Uganda” one of the women
Other vulnerable families are also still using the land that we hired for them, they are able to provide food for their families and able to keep paying for the land every season.
We are grateful to the GlobalGiving and all the donors making this possible.

OVC School Sponsorship Project
Due to the COVID-19 lockdown, schools were not operating therefore, all our sponsored children are being kept at home and are learning from there.
Adult Literacy and Vocational Skilling
We have six students enrolled in our Community Resource Center tailoring class and nine students enrolled in hair dressing.
Menstrual Hygiene Management
We had an on-going Menstrual Hygiene Management project funded by Amplify Change. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we requested permission from our donors to change some of the planned activities in light of the fact that the schools included in the project were under lockdown. Amplify Change gave us a no-additional-cost extension of 3 months to complete agreed-upon project work, some of which involved new activities to replace others that we were unable to implement during the lockdown. The new activities included research on the impact of COVID-19 on SRHR (Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights) among adolescents and women, Interpersonal Group Therapy to identify and address the needs of depressed women, distributing Maama Kits and Baby Receivers, and supporting expectant mothers with transport money to enable them to go to the hospital to deliver, and providing them with emergency food.
