More than one meal a day

By Brenda Nakirya | Project Leader

All the 16 households that we started with  in this food security project are now able to have more than one meal a day.

"We used to have 1 meal in a day.....but that changed when Community Concerns Uganda initiated this project. I got 85kgs of soya last season which i sold at USH 1,500 each Kg. I used the money to start up a small business which has helped me to buy scholastic materials for other children not sponsored by Community Concerns Uganda and buy sauce to complement the food harvested." Isma

I got 40kgs of maize that we still eat as posho today. And up to now, we are still harvesting the sweet potatoes for last season.

Honestly, this project has changed our households. I have planted maize, potatoes, and soya for this season. But the weather is so bad this time.... anyway, i hope to continue renting the land where i planted the potatoes.

Growing of sugar cane in this area has made renting land to small-scale farmers almost impossible due to the high prices.

"Before this project started, i could not afford money to rent land for growing food. I barely had what to eat at home, but thanks to Community Concerns Uganda, i now have what to eat. I got 65kgs of soya and 45kgs of maize last season. I sold the soya and bought more food and other seeds (Groundnuts) for this season.... we now have at least 2 meals each day."  Bosco
