Our work in Uganda

Uganda is a landlocked and fertile country with many lakes and rivers. Some 86% of the population live in rural areas and rely on subsistence agriculture.

More than half live in poverty without reliable access to food, as despite Uganda’s good soil and favourable weather, there are many barriers preventing poor farmers making the most of the country’s growing economy.

Farm Africa works with rural Ugandans to increase the value of their harvests through better farming practices and simple processing of any surplus they produce. We help them find ways of earning a living that are suited to their natural environment, so they can improve their lives without damaging the natural resources they rely on.

We also support rural communities so they can have more of a voice in shaping the policies that affect their lives.
