Summary

Farmers in western Uganda are often unable to afford enough seed for each growing season and families go hungry. Seeds4Seeds equips farmers with seeds and the necessary agronomic practices to grow maize, beans, and rice to increase food production, reduce poverty through the sale of surplus produce, save their own seed for the next season to avoid buying counterfeit seeds on market and to be able to pay school fees for their children.

Challenge

Community leaders asked ACESWorld to help Nkoko Village because children there were dying of starvation. Family farmers have access to land but lack the resources to buy seeds and knowledge of good farming practices.

Solution

ACESWorld Seeds4Seeds program gives family farmers seeds and equips them with the necessary farming practices to grow maize, beans, and rice to increase food production, reduce poverty through the sale of surplus produce, save their own seed for the next season to avoid buying some of the counterfeit seeds on market and afford to send their children to school.

Long-Term Impact

ACESWorld Seeds4Seeds farmers harvested their crops and saved seeds for planting the following season. Food insecurity has been reduced, families can afford to send their children to school. The impact on the village has also been positive, reducing food insecurity and cushioning families against possible negative events, natural or socioeconomic.
