Challenge

Northern Uganda is a post conflict region, with a temperate climate. While the food agencies have been there for decades, there are shortages; for the region to successfully recover and for peace to continue, the people of the region must begin to grow their own food, feeding themselves, their families and their communities. What we know is that women produce up to 80% of food in developing countries, WGEF is supporting women and farming projects thru our agricultural loan program.

Solution

The agricultural project will provide 30 women with agricultural loans, training and support, ensuring that our clients are able to successfully plant, grow and harvest their crops. Supporting women farmers is the way to create food security.

Long-Term Impact

By funding the WGEF agro program, 30 women will have the opporutnity to create small to medium scale agro projects. Women comprise the majority of Africa's farmers, playing a major role in farming, biodiversity and protecting nature.
