It is now a year since the SEND A SEED WOMEN’S PROJECT IN UGANDA started fundraising on GlobalGiving.
Despite of the set in of the COVID-19 Pandemic we appreciate that you, our kind heaterted donors, have helped make the project a success.The project which started in 2019 with just three women has now a membership of 100 women and continue growing.
It is great opportunity for the involved families and other extended beneficiaries of the project having nutritious and enough food at times as the of COVID-19 Pandemic.
We have been given another opportunity to fundraise using the globalgiving platform.
Therefore we kindly and humbly request you to donate to the fundraising on the link below as
We are grateful for that in Uganda the death toll resulting from COVID-19 is still low at 65 deaths and with slightly over 6000 infections half of whom have recovered.
The Send A Seed Women’s Project however; like many community projects and income generating activities has been negatively impacted by COVID-19. Most of the seeds that we were to provide to other people to grow ended being consumed as most members could not work during lock down as they work on their gardens as groups and some starving people in the nearby were also provided some of the bean and maize seeds to eat.
At the end of last month August,the women,their chairperson,project cordinator,and the organization officials and board met and had to look for a way forward one of which was to continue fundraising and appeals for support for the project. Some new members were provided bean and maize seeds which at the moment we are concentrating on.
The volunteer agricultural assistant continues to assist the seed growers of the project while the other people taking positions of responsibility continue to work on voluntary basis. We always aim at making sure that every fund provided goes directly to purchase of seeds.
GlobalGiving has given us again an opportunity to fundraise through their fundraising platform. The ongoing fundraising is accessed through the link below. Kindly donate and share it with others as well.
This report is mainly to thank you for your support that has not only enabled us to multiply seeds and increase food for the members and others but also has helped as food security and source especially so during the unexpected pandemic of the Corona Virus.
Members were able to have source of enough nutritious food an essential for the body strength to fight the corona as well as sustain the supported people during the lock down.
We have been given agan an opportunity to launch the project on GlobalGiving.
We therefore kindly request for your support.
The recently Launched fundraising is on this link:
The Send A seed Women's project Kabale Uganda is going on successfully and progressively and we have high hopes that it wil enable the economic emancipation of the women in the area it operates from.
The project was started by the Industrial Workers of the World Kabale Uganda with just three women (as seen in the photos) and now the number has grown to over 20 and we expect to enroll more once we get more funding to buy assorted seeds for the women peasants and farmers.
The purpose of the project is to enable women and their families hav enough seeds to serve as food for their homes as well as for sale for income generating purposes and then another equal amount as the woman was given to provide to a nother new woman entrant into the project.
We have so far done the following:
1.Two planting seasons utilised and two harvestings which gave satisfactory yield of harvests.
2.From the first three women,they have grown the seeds and in the order of sending seeds to other new fello women,the harvests have enable at least the number to become 20.
3.A volunteer Agricultural Officer is helping the women on how to make good natural organic fertilisers and organic pest killers to enable them have bigger crop/seed yields
4.Several visitors have visited the project and learned from it and advised accordingly as well.
